The Youth Intern Program is a summer internship for youth in Saint Paul to create a documentary that addresses a community issue. This summer, one of our youth production groups partnered with YouthPrise to produce a short documentary on youth poverty. They interviewed the staff at YouthPrise and learned that, in order for youth to thrive, they need to have their basic needs met. This led them to interview a variety of other programs that are working on addressing youth poverty, including Avenues for Homeless Youth, YouthPacks, and Eagle’s Canteen. The youth who created this documentary hope to teach people about the real challenges that youth in poverty face and what we can do to help.
