Members of YO! expressed an interest in moviemaking and the arts in 2013, and, as a group, decided to pursue media projects. A highlight was the receipt of a grant from Youth As Resources in early 2014, which enabled the group to purchase a GoPro camera and accessories, making moviemaking accessible for several individuals who previously had been unable – or told they were unable – to operate a camera independently!
