As environmental issues become a greater concern locally, nationally, and globally, students enrolled in Powerful Voices for Kids often have strong feelings about environmental concerns. Our instructors work with students to create media designed as a public service on topics like recycling, green roof initiatives, and keeping Philadelphia clean.

Last summer, second grade students in PVK worked with their instructor, singer/songwriter Mona Shater, to write a poem as part of the Unlitter Us anti-littering campaign in Philadelphia.

Students met with Caroline Pennartz, an advertiser who worked on the campaign, and were inspired to write their own poem. Then they created a shot list consisting of some favorite spots near school (the Comcast building, Logan Circle, etc.) and filmed a short “Poetic Service Announcement,” which was featured in the Unlitter Us campaign on Facebook.
