Takalam: Arab Youth Speak Up! is AFMI’s summer program for Arab-American youth aged 13 to 18.
The initiative of this program is to uplift the voices of our younger generations, to support the achievement and success of newcomer families, and to help develop the leadership of our Arab-American students. One of the goals for this program is to help students with their literacy and digital skills through group projects, workshops and digital classes.
All final films from Takalam are screened at the annual Arab Film Festival.
