For the third year in a row, we hosted a Multimedia Boot Camp, where youth in our Fellowship Program created two multimedia pieces with the help of local photojournalists and videographers. These videos expand our student’s skills, and teach them about how visual storytelling can lead to concrete change.
The first piece was created by fourth-year Fellow Malik. In it he shares a personal reflection of how restorative justice could have prevented him from leaving the public school system. In the second piece, Fellows Anaise, Delonte, Maya, and Nadia collaborated to tell the story of the Fellow’s two-year journey to implement restorative justice in D.C. public schools.
We want to acknowledge the 2014 multimedia mentors: Liane Scott, Lishan Amde, Liz Lynch, and Allison Shelley.
