Social Media Team Creates Film Documentary
After a year of planning, conducting surveys, interviewing, filming, and editing, the Youth Leadership Program Social Media Project crew proudly premiered its first documentary film entitled “Finding Our Way, The Struggle with Anxiety and Depression in Urban Youth” on August 26, 2016, at Liberty Center in Berwyn. Realizing the effects of being bombarded by social media messages, TV, peers, family, and school pressures, the team decided to delve into the issues of teen depression and anxiety which plague so many teenagers today. They surveyed their peers, interviewed fellow students and professional adults familiar with these issues and their impact on teenagers’ lives. The team plans to present the film to other teen groups and middle schoolers throughout the school year.
