When it comes to practical application of skills that could lead directly to jobs later in life, Remington-based Wide Angle Youth Media wants to be ahead of the curve.
It trains middle and high school students in Baltimore city schools in media production (audio and video) and photography. Now, in conjunction with several city school students, Wide Angle Youth Media is lending its equipment and expertise to help produce a film about school-age Baltimoreans who have gotten caught up in the “cycle of violence” in this city.

Most of the money will be spent on two months’ worth of professional mentoring and “program facilitation” for the students producing the film, according to Wide Angle’s GiveCorps page.
