For this project, our youth split into three groups to conduct interviews of Greater Homewood residents. The final product consisted of three audio files between 20 and 30 minutes long, but some groups recorded conversations up to an hour long before editing! While our intern, Zack, and I were present for the interviews, the youth were responsible for everything: choosing the questions to ask, following up to learn more, and final editing.
Edit 8/18/2010: GHCC has been a YouthWorks host work site for the past six years. This year, we hosted seven youth, all of whom participated in the oral history project.
