Youth Internship Fall 2013

Thurgood Marshall Center
Dates Of Project: 
September 2013-November 2013

Do young people really take advantage of the opportunities offered to them? Are they interested in themselves or the collective?

The Youth Internship is a 8-week in-house program comprised of youth from all over the city. Youth Interns learn the basics of using photography to create social change and how varying forms of oppression intersect and affect their lives. Upon completion of the program, they are encouraged to join the Fellowship.

Critical Exposure’s first-ever Youth Internship program included eight high school students from all over the city. Youth Interns researched, photographed, and prepared presentations around street harassment and gentrification. They then facilitated workshops around these two issues for a Critical Exposure students and staff.
