Relocated to Staten Island after a brutal civil war, Liberian youth and their families find a new set of challenges. EVC youth producers document the Liberians’ struggles to overcome adversity with the support of their local school and community centers, as they heal from the traumas of war and make a new life here. The Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting provided mentoring for this project.
