In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!”
Dr. King had a powerful vision for our nation and a determination to turn that vision into reality. Just as Dr. King’s vision was essential to his accomplishments, every young person needs to have a vision – or dream – for their future. What is your dream for the future? You probably have more than one, from personal goals about your education, your future career, and starting your own family, to goals that have to do with the difference you can make in your community and in the world.
Teens Have Choices, Volunteer Washington County, and Anderson Photographs are celebrating MLK Day with an “I Have a Dream” photo session at the Valley Mall. Children and teens will create signs at the photo booth illustrating their own dream for their future. For example, “I Have a Dream… that one day I will go to college,” “I Have a Dream… to become a firefighter when I grow up.” A photographer from Anderson Photographs will take photos of each young person and their dream, and Teens Have Choices will post them online for everyone to see!
The photo booth will be at Center Court at Valley Mall – across from the Bon-Ton.
For volunteer opportunities in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., please visit Volunteer Washington County.
In addition to the photo booth, Washington County teens are invited to join us for a photography project from 10 am until noon the same day. Join us as we compose images of Washington County and other themes for use online. Have fun while earning Student Service Learning hours!
