Today I am going to focus on Journey of Action.  Journey of Action will be one of the featured speakers at this year’s YLS. Journey of Action is a project created by two siblings, Kassidy and Ryan Brown.  It is an independent production company that produces inspiring and eye-opening short films that promote growth and change in the world.

Their mission goes hand in hand with our Move Forward, Give Back theme this year. They believe that “this generation is aware of our social and environmental challenges we face on a local and global level, but they lack the daily tools for action,” and that at the same time while many groups, individuals, and organizations are taking steps to make an active difference, they are receiving little to no media attention for their work at all. “Journey of Action fills that void by featuring these amazing change-makers in entertaining and enlightening short form videos that aim to inspire the viewers to take action.”
