About Us

YR Raw is the bleeding edge of YR Media, a national network of young journalists and artists.

This digital magazine features student work from our media classes in journalism, audio production, design, video and photography. If you’re a student, a young artist or writer, an activist, a parent, a teacher, or someone who believes in the power of this generation — you’re in the right place! 

Hang out and explore our creative content on identity, culture, and rising artists.

If you like what you see, you can check out ways to support and join us, at our YR Media headquarters in Oakland. 

Sign up for our 6-month media education program and produce your own creative work. You’ll collaborate with professionals and peers to learn marketable skills in media and digital technology and prepare for production internships at YR Media. Plus, you’ll get to see your published work in a future issue of YR Raw!
