Operation: Identity

 

For this student,  exploring identity meant investigating and embracing the progress that the current generation has made towards accepting people who are not the majority, based on their race, class, gender or sexuality. To further understand the philosophy and ideas of adolescents on the topic of gender, this student interviewed a number of classmates to gather their their diverse perspectives, values, and beliefs. The result of the interviews work and the message this student wants to share with the world is creatively captured in these portraits

Justice for Imprisoned Youth

 

Students used their case-study research and understanding of issues in the youth prison system to create a short documentary. The film was designed to broaden the awareness of the mistreatment of incarcerated juveniles. These young women interviewed adults who work for the youth prison system, youth who have been incarcerated, as well as members of local community programs who provide reintegration support for former juvenile prisoners.

Girls' Education

 

This exhibit explores how inequality of girls education impacts society. By researching girls education in three different countries (including the U.S.) , students were able to draw several conclusions:

  • Fewer maternal death and reduced mortality rate for children under 5 years old.

  • Delayed marriage and better parenting skills.

  • Improved literacy skills leading to greater economic opportunities

  • More skills and knowledge enhancing women’s self-esteem and the well-being of families.
