Sociecity Youth on Assignment is a pilot program where High School aged students work with their teachers and Sociecity staff to create articles that bring to light opinions on real world social issues affecting them.
2013 | Gunderson High School
Our first program was carried out in 2013 with the students of Mary Cheung, photography teacher at Gunderson High School in San Jose, California. In a two month photography and writing assignment, students tackled issues ranging from Islamaphobia to Youth Violence and everything in between.
The results were amazing, and we were able to give students a voice, to gently guide them, and to watch as their work and insights came to life on the Sociecity website.
