The Fall 2013 interns focused on gaining youth perspectives on the dropout crisis. The group surveyed students, conducted focus groups with their peers, and interviewed youth, educators, mentors, and community leaders to create their final video project that reflects the uplifting message they want to share with all youth: be the change.
