The Virtual Video Project has come to an end and I am so proud of the work we have accomplished. I would like to extend well-deserved congratulations to the youth and facilitators involved in this extraordinary summer learning program.
Throughout the program, we focused on skills that are transferrable to youth’s future career aspirations. These skills include public speaking, collaborating with peers to achieve a common goal, and supporting arguments and opinions with reputable sources. In addition, we assisted youth in working in creative capacities, such as using their imaginations to create an original storyline and using Second Life and digital media to bring this story to life.
In an effort to process through the work we have done, we asked youth guiding questions about their experiences with VVP. I would like to share of few of these responses:
“My participation in VVP has helped improved my research skills, my confidence and my global awareness. These skills will help me with my future goals by researching I can learn more about my options, the confidence will help me become more assertive and reach for want I want to achieve in life.” – Keisha
