Empowering young people to lead

Teens Making a Difference


All Project AWARE programs support teens telling real life stories in a powerful way. Young people create high quality movies that address social issues and make a difference. Hooked was created by young people at the Project AWARE Summer Film Institute. Youth created a fictional story based on their experience with opiate misuse. The dialogue that follows results in increased awareness about issues and healthier young people. It also increases marketable skills as they prepare themselves for the job market.
