Youth Documentary Lab

YDL is a digital storytelling initiative with the goal to engage, support, and cultivate the voices of Lehigh Valley youth.  The program has partnered with Community Bike Works’ Youth Leadership Program, artists and regional filmmakers to support a cohort of six student-filmmakers who have continued to meet virtually and who have been collaborating on concerns relating to policing in the schools.  Youth Documentary Lab has been led by Drew Swedberg, partnering with Filmmaking Mentors Educators, and community organizers.
