New Snapshots Video: Helping Foster Youth Heal and Grow—One Film at a Time
Experience the emotional evolution of Kids in the Spotlight (KITS), and how it uses filmmaking to help foster youth achieve their full potential. During this Snapshots presentation, KITS Board Member Gregory D. Metzger illustrated how its unique approach—training youth to create, write, cast, and star in their own films—helps the kids to express themselves, heal, and find hope.
Watch Metzger's touching presentation, which uses video clips to show how the kids apply the skills they learn in the program to their personal and academic lives to help them achieve their full potential.
"The most important thing that we've seen, and it's what we've seen the most, is a transition, a shift, from despair to hope," he explained.
All the Alliance Snapshots, TED Talk-inspired presentations that took place at the 2016 Alliance National Conference, will hopefully move you to take action and incorporate new and transformational ideas within your organization and community.
