Video Project

To Foster Change created the Youth Voices Video Project to allow foster youth to tell their own stories. The project team selected former foster youth from across the area to attend a video production bootcamp. A professional filmmaker guided each youth through the storytelling process helping them capture their own lives on camera. In addition to learning the skills necessary for a career in Los Angeles’ massive creative industry, To Foster Change surprised each budding filmmaker with a camera and stipend at the end of the program. Watch this behind-the-scenes look at the first-ever Youth Voices Video Project.
