PhotoEssay 1“Photo Essay” is an inquiry-based project that introduces youth to the tools and techniques that can be used to create original digital content about issues, trends, and happenings that are important to them. Participants will examine news, arts, and biographical materials as a vehicle to understanding the similarities and differences between the personal and social changes they are facing and the challenges that youth in similar cultures and environments have experienced in the past.

The project is broken into eight sessions and designed for 12- to 14-year-olds.
