Creating Content 101

Singing Workshop

"Content" as a media industry term represents materials that can take many forms. Examples include books, screenplays, art, videos and music. Producer Rebecca Reese and her associates donated a day to give six foster youth from three group homes mentoring and hands-on experiences where they learned how to write, design and edit their own content.

Rose White from Maryvale said, "My girls said they had a blast. One now knows what career path she wants to follow." Stefan from Bayfront remarked, "I learned a lot of cool new things."

Bravo writer Scarlet Perez observed, "Mentoring was even more rewarding then I could have imagined."


Create Now is proud to have been a participant in the 2013 Annenberg Alchemy program.

Shira Kreitenberg is home from college this summer. She's a talented singer and is sharing her love of singing with several homeless teenagers at L.A. Family Housing in North Hollywood. Asia, age 15, has an amazing voice. At first she didn't want to participate in the workshop and complained about a headache. When the workshop was over, she didn't want it to end.

Shira is teaching them about their vocal ranges and how to harmonize on their favorite songs. Jason, age 14, is a heavy metal fan. He remarked, "I really enjoyed singing with everyone else, even a song that I never knew the words to before. It was a challenge but I made it through."

Activities Coordinator Ingrid Alvarado commented, "Jason is very shy, but has opened up now that he has joined the singing class."

Create Now is honored to have been selected as a 2014 Top-Rated Arts/Culture and Education Nonprofit by Guidestar and Great Nonprofits.
