Media, Youth, and Civic Engagement — Fact Sheet

This fact sheet pulls together the latest information on the role of media in youth civic participation. It reviews how the media is used to get out the vote, ways television and movies depict politics and government, and how the Internet is used to engage youth (age 18-25) in civic and political activities.

This is the twelfth in a series of reports and fact sheets on topics related to children, media and health that pull together the most relevant research on such issues as the digital divide, TV violence, teens online, media ratings, and children and video games.
