Stories from the Pandemic Launch


Stories from the Pandemic is a multimedia initiative that documents youth-centered experiences during the coronavirus pandemic. The essays, videos, and images, offer an intimate look inside a range of unique experiences that young people are facing.⠀

Join us at the link in our bio and here on social media as we explore what the COVID19 pandemic looks and feels like from these young people’s perspective. As a pandemic hits, youth respond.⠀

This project is a collaboration between the Newark Board of Education and Newest Americans.
