Connectopod empowers youth by connecting them to their communities, their peers and their voices using podcast! Connectopod is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Founded in 2017, we've served over 150 youth with innovative podcast programming at organizations across Los Angeles. In addition to providing skills and a platform to be heard, our program strengthens literacy and emotionally bolsters youth that have experienced trauma. We feel strongly that telling one's story is healing. Validation of our own worth happens when people listen.
Our cofounders, Betsy Foldes Meiman and Andrea Longoria Lopez, have been teaching youth podcasting skills for over 8 years. Listen at www.connectopod.net Your support will help us to serve more young people!
