Youth Internship Fall 2014

Thurgood Marshall Center

Critical Exposure’s Youth Internship program is an eight week introduction to youth organizing, advocacy and photography for interested D.C. youth. This fall, twelve young people began learning basic photography skills and exploring the strengths and challenges of their shared communities. In collaboration with the Fellowship program, the Youth Interns decided to explore the impact of police in high schools on D.C. youth. In December, they organized and hosted a youth-only event to share stories and solutions to the problem of over-reliance on policing in schools. In January, ten youth interns will become Fellows to continue their work on school pushout.
