Weblog #4 – Post #2 – Youth by Youth

Continuing my focus on digital storytelling projects, I have found Calgary’s Towards Resiliency for Vulnerable Youth Project.

The University of Calgary collaborated with United Way in 2011 to create a digital storytelling project with community youth.  The main purpose was to empower youth to express their challenges and strengths, providing them with a deeper understanding of themselves.  Youth from a variety of backgrounds and experiences were able to connect, reflect, and share stories.

The project lasted one week, and youth collaborated in selecting their stories, writing, editing, recording, and creating digital stories.  The nine stories created were shared in the community and are available on the site.
