Please join us for a special screening more than 30 mini-documentaries produced by local teens who share, through film, the issues they face as emerging adults. The screening will be held on Sunday, May 2 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Dryden Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

Raising 100,000 Voices works collaboratively with local and regional organizations to engage youth and young adults (12-24 years old) from traditionally disadvantaged segments of the population in a “video voice” community education program. This youth-led approach fosters the development of a shared community perspective on the realities of growing up in our local communities and results in communication across a “generation gap” between those running service systems and the consumers of these systems. Raising 100,000 Voices is a direct hands-on service to youth and young adults and provides the opportunity to learn about videography, filmmaking and to document their strengths and challenges they face transitioning into adulthood by producing 3-minute documentaries.
