The Civic Life Project uses documentary film making to teach students valuable civic skills. We work with college and high school students to create documentary films about civics issues of their choice.
Over the school year our facilitators visit the classroom and lead video conferences to help students though each phase of production. Multi-school online web conferences connect students in different school districts, as well as offer one-on-one online support.
This project based approached to learning builds student's self confidence, fosters critical thinking, hones communication skills, enhances problem solving abilities and encourages community engagement. It builds capacity in schools by providing teachers with resources both online and in person. Our in-school presence through our facilitators transforms the classroom into a vibrant and engaging laboratory for civics.
