D.C. Vito co-founded The LAMP (Learning About Multimedia Project) in 2007. Since that time, The LAMP has brought media literacy training to over 2,500 youth, parents and educators, transporting equipment and facilitators directly to communities in need of its services. Under Mr. Vito’s leadership as Executive Director, The LAMP’s programming capacity has grown tremendously from serving roughly 75 students in the 2010-2011 school year, to serving over 850 students by the 2011-2012 school year. Mr. Vito worked as a community organizer for many years prior to The LAMP, having served in the Peace Corps in Mali, and managing campaigns for City Council, State Senate and Presidential candidates. He currently sits on the Board of Directors for the National Association for Media Literacy Educators (NAMLE) and began teaching a course in Media Literacy & Activism at Queens College in the fall of 2014.
