Scribe Seeks Student Workers for Documentary History Project for Youth


Write, Shoot, Edit a Documentary Video!

Use professional video equipment! Learn more about your community! Get paid for your efforts! No experience required!

Documentary History Project for Youth is an after-school, weekend & summer program
for 8th - 12th graders. If selected to participate, your job begins in March & ends in Sept./Oct. 2009.

In each project year, a group of eight to twelve student filmmakers work for up to 6 hours a week during the school year and 15 hours during the summer. We pay the student filmmakers a modest stipend for their efforts. Students work closely with experienced film and video makers each cycle as well as historians, librarians, archivists, musicians, community leaders and activists who facilitate the processes of research, story development, and production. Since 1994, student filmmakers have completed many documentaries, several of which have been broadcast locally on public television stations WHYY and WYBE (after their premiere at a local theater).
