MRH's Gateway2Change Team Debuts the "Photovoice Project"
The proud members of Gateway2Change presented their 2019-20 project at Emerson Co. in Ferguson.
Gateway2Change was created in 2014 after the tragic events in Ferguson and has served more than 400 students representing 38 high schools throughout the St. Louis region. Annual groups of students participate in summits facilitated by program staff and community partners. Students explore how social and cultural differences influence individual life experiences and perspectives; and apply problem-solving models to develop solutions for issues related to diversity and equity.
The MRH group surveyed their fellow students on issues of social justice as part of a presentation titled "The Photovoice Project."
Gateway2Change Student Summits on Race inspire and motivate young people to become leaders for positive change in their local community. This unique approach helps young people engage in purposeful conversations about the social and cultural differences that exist within the St. Louis region and create a plan to affect positive change.
