Docs In Progress is proud of our young artists programming.

We approach this programming as professional training targeted for high school students. 



Summer Teen Workshops

Our legacy summer teen works is where students spent one or two weeks working as a team to produce a short video for a local non-profit or business or work on personal projects.

In Summer 2022, Docs reopened our doors and our young artists produced videos focusing on Arts on the Block, Muscle Money BBQ, Silver Spring Library, and the Silver Spring Dog Park.

This Summer, we expanded our programming for students in grades 7-8 and a new workshop, Sound for Picture!  Plus we are offering a 2-week workshop in July and a 1-week in August.  Join Us!

Village Reels

Certificates_4.jpgIn 2022, Docs In Progress created a new youth program with an intergenerational focus, initially called Village Vignettes.  Two-thirds of today’s youth don't know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, Black History is missing from history books and today's teens were born after 9-11.

If we are to advance racial and cultural equity, in part, it is our duty to remember and share the past. Those who don’t know the past, are destined to repeat it.

Docs partnered with Montgomery Blair High School and volunteers from Silver Spring Village to create personal videos about the villagers experiences. The High school students interviewed the villagers about their impressive personal stories and produced short videos. The final projects were screened in public at the Silver Spring Civic Building in May 2022. Docs is pleased to announce that there will be a second season of Village Voices with MBHS and Silver Spring Village, and we are planning to expand the program to Wheaton High School.
