Anouncements! Anouncements! Anouncements!

We wanted to thank everyone who participated and shared our global forum. You were the key to our success! The students did a great job of taking the topics of education, poverty, protest, technology and hope to their personal page and encouraging their friends to begin a conversation on these important topics. Thank you Veronica Songbird Boyd for leading the charge!

We've made some great partnerships right here in the city of brotherly Love. The Do Remember Me Project partnered with The Village of Arts and Humanities to share in a project to raise awareness on the youth homeless project. Check out out their work on DoSomething.org!

We are excited to begin our Spring cycle! We have partnered with the People's Emergency Center, located in West Philadelphia!

Also, our youth have been working hard and it has paid off! We now have youth that travel to other organizations events and are hired to use the skills they have gained through the program to photograph, record and write for/about these fabulous youth organization in our city. I am so very proud of them andgrateful to the leaders of these organization that have taken an interest in the work our students are doing and the faith they have in the work they can do for their organizations.

SPRING REGISTRATION 2015

Sundance Institute, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Loki Films

It was sometime in the fall of 2014, the students had settled into the routine of school and after-school programing when I received a call from Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing of Loki Films. these Emmy Award winning filmmakers had chosen The Do Remember Me Project to be the subject of their next project for the Sundance Institute and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

They made several journeys to Philadelphia, soldiered through lack of heat in buildings, picking up students, rough weather conditions and providing meals to create an amazing visual journey across the global.

I am truly honored and deeply grateful by the outpouring of compassion and abundant blessings that have resulted from the making of this film.
