Documenting the Strength of their Community

Throughout the 2015-2016 academic year, VCU Sociology service-learning students collaborated with "The Green Team," a group of students from the Oak Grove/Bellemeade Community Center, to create a video about their community. They learned about video production and video editing with a media team from VCU ALT Lab, including interviewing many leaders from their community. In this project, the middle school students took a leadership role in this production, and learned a lot in the process.

The project was featured in a Dec. 16 Richmond Times-Dispatch article, "Documenting the strength of their community."
