“Journeymakers is a project-based SEL mentoring and restorative justice-centered initiative that uplifts marginalized low-income students-of-color and LGBTQ+ students at Towson High School who struggle within the school's discipline system. Students become “journeymakers” as they create ongoing visual narratives with photography, text, collage, video and multimedia that embody their ongoing character-building and team-playing. Students share their projects in showcases to the school so that they are seen, heard and valued as vital members of the learning community.”
