In 2014, the Digital Storytelling project partnered with Antyx Community Arts and continued to be supported by the United Way. This project partnered University students with youth from the community who are currently accessing a variety of social services to use digital stories to provide a voice to youth as they transition to adulthood. This project provided a platform for youth from various backgrounds to come together to share their stories, develop new media skills and foster meaningful relationships.
