Everything I see is darker than light
I know I’m wrong but I don’t want to be right
Everything I see is farther in the dark
I cut and I cut until I bleed through another mark
Step by step I get through one day
I hate all these people that keep standing in my way
For some reason I don’t want to listen to what they have to say
And to be honest I don’t really think I’m okay
I don’t know what I hear and what I see
But I guess I’m going crazy
Cause I’m somewhere I don’t want to be.

The kNOw Youth Media
The kNOw works to support and equip young people with the journalism and advocacy skills they need to tell their stories and the stories of their communities.

In 2006, over 25 youth began participating in weekly after-school writing workshops where they congregated in the hallway of a two-story building in West Fresno and learned the essentials of creating media and telling their stories. The group evolved over the next five years and is now proudly recognized as The kNOw Youth Media.

Through our program, we create opportunities for our youth participants, who in turn create long-term positive change in their communities. Our approach weaves youth development and youth media innovation to produce our biannual youth publication, multimedia projects, and community forums.

The kNOw began as a project of New America Media, which was the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. In 2018 The kNOw became a project of Youth Leadership Institute.
