Street-Level Youth Media is a non-profit, media arts literacy organization serving Chicago's youth.  We teach audio engineering, mixing, video production, digital photography, online journalism, and more.  If you are between the ages of 12 through 24, all of our programs and services are free.

If you live in Chicago and are between 12 - 24 years old, come take part in one or all of our media arts programs, book a private studio session, use our computer lab or join one of our clubs.  We also host an open-mic on the first Friday of each month.  

Mild Sauce

A Youth-Run Webzine From Chicago.

Nancy M. Abbate


Mild Sauce is a webzine covering news and commentary on the people, culture, and events of Chicago. The journalists are young adults (under 25) who live and breathe this city, and are committed to high-quality news and storytelling.

We tell the stories of younger generations that are too often overlooked by mainstream media. We also aim to pass on news literacy skills to our readers, and cultivate critical engagement with the media in our peers.
