Our Students

Our students attend high schools in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore and were joined by interns from Howard and Morgan State Universities as well as UHMP alumni who were rising freshman from New York University and Syracuse University. Soon, they will be working with students in other cities around the U.S., as well as globally on a youth mental health documentary.
