YOUTH & BLUE

Youth & Blue: A Listening and Learning Exchange provided an opportunity for teens to build relationships with two local police officers. 

 

The project gave our teens a leadership experience and provided real insight into perspectives across the spectrum of race, age, socio-economic status, and power constructs. The project culminated in the creation of a video and a discussion guide, available below.

WATCH THE VIDEO

Produced in collaboration with Lighthouse Studio, the video offers a compelling and commonplace scenario. How does it end? You decide. To view the video, use password: lighthouse

DOWNLOAD THE DISCUSSION GUIDE

The culminating event of Youth &  Blue was to be a public screening of the video and youth-led roundtable discussions. COVID-19 interrupted that plan, but we have made our discussion guide available for communities to engage in positive, thought-provoking conversation.
