    In the first installment of this Story Circle series about our Tech-Teach Design and Fabrication Skills program, we heard from the organizers and teachers who work with D.C. area teens. In this second episode, we turn the mic over to the young people who are current or former participants in the iCAN Technical Theatre, Tech-Teach, and Wise Young Builders programs.

    Join us for a conversation with these students as they speak to their experiences as participants and the impact of cultural, arts, and professional building trades educational programs.
