Three women and a baby doesn't make a mob and yet I felt that even a few people saying "thank you" to the people who work with our youth was worth a video. Youth workers tend to be underpaid. I know this because I was once camp counselor. Youth coaches, boy scout and girl scout leaders aren't paid at all.
I had five minutes to shoot some video and photos of the "Thank A Youth Worker Day" Freeze Flash Mob at the Allen County Courthouse. Afterwards, I interviewed Jen McKinney, an ACPL librarian, who talked about the need to thank workers who play an important role in the lives of youth.
