Youth from around the world connect

By Kelly Jirsa

Youth from around the world connect
This project is connecting youth from around the world, sharing their hopes, challenges and questions through film and on Skype.

Connect. Dispel. Build.

This moving film follows a project that is connecting youth in Philadelphia, New York, Tanzania, Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Paris and Kazakhstan.

“The world is as big or as small as you make it”

Using Skype, young people are encouraged to share information about their communities, ask and answer questions about their lifestyle, interests and challenges they face.

The young people involved are finding common ground, inspiration and connection that transcend cultural differences.
