Chicago has ranked the highest in terms of number of high school murders. Determined to combat this, Stinnette & Brown LLC started a revolutionary program in June 2009 to bring together 98 Chicago Public School Students from 25 different high schools. They were given a combination of classroom teaching on the green movement and hands-on learning on ways to create a healthier living for them and their communities… all while being paid as part of having a green collar summer job.
Duration: 4min 20secs
Shot on the Panasonic HVX200
Produced by Stinnette & Brown, CitizenGlobal and Conscious Planet Media.
Cinematographers: Karl Geweniger, Mischa Hedges and me.

I enjoyed working on this my junior year of high school, Now I’m a upcoming sophomore in college, still promoting people to go green. Thank you Project Green Heals
Thanks for your comment, I’m so glad to hear from a participant in the program! We had a lot of fun filming with you and your friends. Great news about you still being conscious about going green. It’s definitely a positive lifestyle shift, and a great one to go through while still in high school! How’s college going for you?
