Gunderson High School Youth on Assignment | Sociecity

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.
