Teaching Photography & Advocacy to D.C. Youth

Aug 7, 2013

Walk in Students' Shoes

This summer we passed the mic - our students are teaching our classes! We launched our first-ever Summer Youth Facilitator Institute, and trained three star students -- Malik, Khadijah, and Anaise -- to work with other youth and teach them to use photography as a tool for social change. Together the SYFI teachers are working with three groups of youth - Cathedral ScholarsDC Promise Neighborhood Initiative, and Guerilla Arts Ink. Check out the photo below to see what they've created!

Also, CE Fellow Orlando is interning this summer with the Advancement Project. This interview asks him about his work with CE and his fight for solutions to the school-to-prison pipeline!
