We have compiled several short video interviews with young people who have experienced homelessness or housing instability in order to highlight their experiences, aspirations, and ideas for change. In keeping with our peer research model, most interviews were conducted by young adults, including several youth who participated in Changing the Odds, the San Francisco District Attorney's Office 2009 summer program in partnership with New America Media/Youth Outlook.
Learn about the youth from Changing the Odds and the New America Media team who created the videos for this wall.
