Over the past few years, the Pinkerton grantee portfolio has seen an increase in programs that focus on learning the tools and story-telling techniques of video production. These programs help give young people a voice to share their stories, address the issues affecting their communities, and learn how to be creators, not just consumers, of media. Along the way they build the vital skills of literacy, leadership and self-confidence.
The Pinkerton Foundation invited Downtown Community Television, Educational Video Center and ReelWorks to participate in a Pinkerton Video Project. The goal was to offer young participants practical work experience while enhancing the Pinkerton website with videos highlighting our grantees. Each organization was asked to have a small group of current participants and/or alumni produce two videos – one about their own program and a second featuring another Pinkerton grantee. Take a look at what they produced:
