Digital Storytelling Initiative

Created a series of summer camps at the St. Paul Public Libraries that connects youth with technical and creative skills necessary for telling their stories through media, with teaching artists and mentors supporting their projects.

Group members:

Community partners: St. Paul Public Libraries, Createch, Science Museum of Minnesota, SPNN, and numerous local artists providing their expertise and local businesses providing in-kind donations

Each year our 35 CTEP AmeriCorps members choose community action projects that make a contribution to bridging the digital divide. The CTEP civic engagement projects are often cited by CTEP AmeriCorps members, staff, supervisors, and community supporters as one of the most unique and energizing parts of the program. This is one of the 2016 civic engagement projects.
