Resource: SchoolTube

From time to time, JobsFirst NYC publicizes resources that better enable educators and youth practitioners to help young people make positive choices in life.

Launched in 2007, SchoolTube is a video sharing website for K-12 education created in response to large-scale access restriction of mainstream video-sharing sites in public schools in the United States.  Much of the material available on SchoolTube has been created by young people for young people.  SchoolTube is more heavily moderated than other video-sharing websites as a result of its unrestricted access in many US public schools.

The site includes a whole series of videos related to dropout prevention, including the one below that aired on the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs.


And, of course, YouTube contains multitudes of video material on dropout prevention.
