The experience begins in Europe, where players create a virtual identity and pack belongings for the trip to New York City. Once on the shores of their new country, players experience the inspection at Ellis Island and head to their new neighborhood: the Lower East Side.


Links for Students:

Educational Video Center
The Educational Video Center (EVC) is a not-for-profit media arts center that teaches documentary video production and media analysis to youth, educators, and community organizers. Excellent resource.

Listen Up!
Listen Up! is a gateway to youth made PSAs on a variety of issues from around the country. By creating these messages, youth portray themselves and their peers on their own terms and engage in the researching, writing, production, editing and distribution of their own media. The Listen Up! Network is a vehicle for youth media producers to exchange and critique each other's work. Look for their feature PSAs on diversity and tolerance after 9/11.

Global Action Project
Global Action Project, Inc. is a media arts organization that provides training in video production and new media technologies for youth both locally and internationally. They support work that reflects immigrant and refugee youth perspectives.

Youth Channel
On January 31st 2002, the Youth Channel will start the New Year looking back at the year 2001. The Youth Channel's Youth Programming Committee has planned an event called "Let's not forget...". The event is a reminder of what preceded September 11, such as the Durban Conference of South Africa.

Youth activists will give their perspectives on issues such as the police brutality and racial profiling that antedate the WTC tragedy but have magnified thereafter. The event will be in the format of a panel with Youth Activists working in areas of Environment and Health, Police Brutality, Racial Profiling and Educational reform. The panel will be followed by a discussion. This event will be aired on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network but is available to other public access and community based centers across the US.


Youth Outlook
OYO! Youth Outlook is an award-winning monthly publication by and for young people who have stories to share. Featuring in-depth reporting pieces and first-person essays, comic strips and poetry pages, YO! is the communication outlet for youth who feel their voice and visions need to be seen and heard. YO! is a bridge to the world of youth expression. Excellent site.

Also, check out Berkeley Youth Radio http://www.youthradio.org and Video Machete http://www.videomachete.org because they are regionally responsive and really good groups.
