Local Organizations Counter Recruiting of Youth by Radical Groups


Our documentary is about ISIS recruitment in the Twin Cities. This issue
is global and local because local youth have been recruited by these
radical groups. We look at issues that lead youth to radicalization as
well as community efforts to steer them away from the radical groups.

This video was directed by Umar, Tristan, Mohammed, Noah and Justin in the
VOICES class of 2014-2015. VOICES stands for Values, Options, Issues and
Choices Explored in Society. Students in the VOICES class create social
issue documentaries with the guidance of teachers Delainia Haug and Laura
Lanik and Teaching Artist/videomaker John Akre. To see all of this year's
