Excerpt from the Introduction:

"The documentary All That I Can Be was produced during the 2003-2004 school year by students participating in EVC’s Youth Organizers Television (YO-TV). YO-TV is a ten-month, paid internship program for graduates of EVC’s Documentary Workshop. YO-TV students build college preparation and media career skills as they produce a documentary video for a client. In 2003, documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki commissioned YO-TV to produce a piece about the U.S. military's recruitment of young people. Turning their cameras on themselves and their teenage peers, the YO-TV producers asked their friends why they were enlisting in the military during a time of war. Mr. Jarecki included this critical youth perspective in his documentary film Why We Fight which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005."
