Challenge

Walking the Path builds literacy and technology skills with at-risk middle and high school students who society has failed. These are students who have fallen through the cracks of our educational system and society as a result of the overwhelming stress they face in their personal lives, whether it be from domestic violence, poverty, gang activity or drugs. Students learn photography and audio/video skills through a series of activities that culminate in the making of auto-biographical movies.

Solution

Students build their literacy and digital skills, and reflect on their experiences to regain interest in school and heal emotionally from their traumas. Activities include writing scripts, and learning video editing.

Long-Term Impact

In Walking the Path, we use art therapy to help high-risk students overcome their past traumas and rebuild their interest in learning, ensuring they stay in school and on the path to success.
