A student documentary about homelessness by 17-year-old Jaren Leiken (a high school senior in Cleveland, Ohio) that asks three questions: what is homelessness; what are people and organizations doing to prevent and cure homelessness; and how can young people help? With insight provided by thinkers, innovators, and a United States Senator, Project Turtle shines a spotlight on one of the worst humanitarian crises of our times, while arguing that all of us—including young people—can bring an end to homelessness in America if we work together.
