YES2 Youth Council Video Project
For the 2015-2016 school year, the YES2 Youth Council focused its efforts on a video-based project to obtain youth voice regarding school safety issues. Council members used indicators identified by CO9to25 as their topics of priority, created interview questions for each indicator, and interviewed staff and students from their respective schools. Each interviewee selected the indicator of most importance to him or her. The interviews were compiled into vignettes based on the indicator on which staff and students chose to speak.
