Charged with being the first group to prototype Frog Design's Collective Action Toolkit in the United States, and presented with an opportunity to work with under-resourced youth in three local high schools a class made up of myself and six other graduate students spent eight weeks facilitating bi-weekly sessions at the high schools.
Each school had a team of three grad students, matched with 12-19 high school students. We worked through the Collective Action Toolkit as a group, with each high school self-identifying a
community issue that affected their lives, and then ideating and selecting a concept to bring to life.
The high school my team worked with (Beach High) selected violence as their topic, and developed a "Violence-Free Week" that they implemented after presenting to the school principal.
My roles for this project included videography, photography, and copywriting for the book we created to tell the stories we learned.
