Below are some of the teen-focused programs that Shine On, Chicago! has participated in the past:

Global Glimpse Teen Ambassador Program —

Shine On Chicago partnered with Global Glimpse in the Fall, 2017 to conduct video interviews with participating teens about their summer trips abroad.
Shine On used the photos and video footage the teens shot during their trip to edit their stories together to create the "Sharing Our Stories" video below.
This program was funded through a grant from HIVE Chicago and Chicago Community Trust.
In the video, teens were able to talk about the effects of being in a different country, often without understanding the language, and having the opportunity to see how other people in the world live firsthand. Their stories will captivate you too!

The Community House Winter Arts Program

Shine On Chicago conducted a Green Screen Day with The Community House in Winter, 2018. Kids found background images on the internet, and then were photographed in front of green screen in a pose of their choice.
Then, we composited the background image with their portraits to create the videos featured below. The two videos are from the afternoon and morning classes.

Chicago Public Library - "Protest" and "Holiday Portrait" Green Screen Workshops

Shine On Chicago conducted a series of Green Screen Teen Workshops for the Chicago Public Library around the themes of protest and holiday portraits.
