Stories of Hope Conference

On Friday, March 18th at Burlington City Arts, VFC educator-partner, Kate Toland of Peoples Academy hosted a conference featuring three students from Harwood Union High School's annual Stories of Hope trip. Maddy D'Amico, Maya Kalkstein, and Eve Golden, along with teacher Steve Rand, presented three video projects that were produced on the 2016 trip. VFC Education Outreach and Media Instructor, Myles Jewell introduced the projects, and the three students contextualized each video.  

Maddy spoke on behalf of a collaborative project with Days for Girls, to bring feminine hygiene products to rural schools, and Maya and Eve both presented work about Teddy, an inspiring Nursery school teacher who runs the Good Samaritan School, and the work she does in her community.
