Youth Perspectives: free workshop + storytelling project!

  • Boys and Girls Club 62 Oak Street Burlington, VT, 05401 United States (map)

Young people in the Burlington/Winooski area: this summer, be part of an interactive youth stories gallery!

The “Youth Perspectives” project invites young people to share their perspectives through interviews, text, and photography, and then to interact with community members at a public event in August at the Fletcher Free Library.

At a series of workshops this summer, you can create portraits and texts about you, your interests, your life. At the first summer workshop on June 26, you will learn some tools to express yourself and create a portrait that can be shared in the gallery event later this summer.

The project is free of cost and open to middle school and high school-aged students. The first workshop is June 26 at 1 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club in Burlington. Email ahaji@vermontfolklifecenter.org with questions or if you'd like to sign up, or just join us on Tuesday June 26 at 1:00 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club, 62 Oak St, Burlington.

The dates, times, and locations of this project's other summer workshops will be posted on www.vermontfolklifecenter.org and on social media. 

This workshop is co-presented by the Vermont Folklife Center, The Burlington Boys and Girls Club, The Fletcher Free Library and AmeriCorps.
