Video Journalism Visits At-Risk Youth Center

PANAMA CITY, Panama, 8 May 2013 — I visited the MUVA Center for at-risk kids to instruct on how today’s digital technology empowers them to document their own lives and to share that reality with other youth who also endure an environment of economic hardship, violence, and the abuse of drugs and alcohol.

These kids were incredibly responsive. They are so hungry to learn, to grow. I’d love to have a few weeks with them to really teach the craft.
