In many low-income neighborhoods, children don’t play outside. It’s unsafe for kids to play on the sidewalk, and there are no parks nearby.
Team-Up for Youth brings after school sports programs and trained coaches to low-income neighborhoods.
The goal of the video is to show Team Up’s work through the experience of the children in the program and the adults who run it.
Photojournalist Deanne Fitzmaurice photographed and filmed Luzy Govea Delgado, 10, in her neighborhood, the Tenderloin in San Francisco.
With a mix of child-like candor and mature insights, Luzy describes life in the Tenderloin, and what it means for her to be a part of Team Up for Youth.Client: Team-Up for YouthPublished:
