With the support of a three-year grant (2014-2017) from the Vermont Children’s Trust Foundation, the Northfield Teen Center’s Walk A Mile Project works to promote youth voice. Youth and community members have been working together to share stories, creating empathy and connection. Mentors work closely with youth to develop and enhance multimedia and storytelling skills. This page contains an ongoing display of some of the work youth have created. Stay tuned.
