TRACE (Teens Re-Imagining Art, Community & Environment) is a jobs-focused teen leadership program run by the Chicago Park District’s Department of Community Recreation. The TRACE program cultivates young creative activists who seek to collaboratively understand and exercise their abilities and shared responsibility to advocate for and create change within their local and wider communities. We do this by using art processes to engage in dialogue, bridge-building and problem-solving. TRACE is a paid internship in the summer and a volunteer opportunity during the school year.

Brain Lewis talks about making a "Documentary" made with young people in chicago who where part of the TRACE program and his reflections on the creative process.
