This summer I spent my Saturday mornings teaching video production to adolescents in a local Juvenile Arbitration Program. The program is intended as an intervention for adolescent first time offenders, with the goal of helping them to stay out of the justice system in the future. We have been using video as a means of enabling the participants to represent themselves to the world, rather than simply accepting what others say about them or resorting to destructive forms of self expression.
