Youth from the Linda Vista Teen Center participated in the mural process and painted a mural on peace, a theme of particular importance in lights of some gang violence in the community. They were invited to prepare a presentation for a faculty workshop on the barriers and difficulties they perceived in going to college. This presentation outlines their perspective.
The faculty participated in adding images to the border of the mural as their reflection on what the youth had said.
