GIRLS’ VOICES NOW
A Social-Change Documentary Filmmaking + Community Activism Youth Program
Our summer youth program amplifies the voices of girls and femme-identifying youth from low-income and underrepresented communities in Los Angeles by teaching documentary filmmaking. Over the course of three weeks, students learn how to create their own short documentary and how to use the medium of film to affect positive social-change in their communities.
COVID – 19 UPDATE
In light of the current health crisis surrounding COVID-19, and to prioritize the health and safety of our participants, staff, and community, Women’s Voices Now has decided to offer our Girls’ Voices Now Summer Youth Program Online.
The application deadline for this program has passed. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
