UAP is proud to be one of the eleven winners of this year’s Digital Media and Learning (DML) Competition, the Playlists for Learning Challenge. As a winner of this competition, UAP will receive a grant to develop a learning playlist that helps learners close opportunity gaps and develop viable pathways to higher education and employment.

With these funds, UAP will develop a Creative Careers playlist, which will guide passionate young people from under-resourced communities in developing the technical skills and creative competencies necessary for success in 21st century creative careers.

The goal of the DML Competition is to develop innovative platforms and tools that support connected learning. This year, the sixth and final DML Competition challenged youth-serving organizations to help scale a platform that will connect local and digital audiences to learning opportunities that leverage young people’s interests and passions to prepare them for success in their classrooms, workplaces and communities.
