Homeless Youth Create Positive Perceptions

A Night of Great Sax

One in five foster youth are LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender). Suicide is the leading cause of death amongst these adolescents.

A new Creating Content 101 workshop took place at the Youth Center on Highland, which is part of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. Nine students learned how to star in and shoot their own videos with help from Rebecca Reese of the R Creative marketing agency and her team of creative coaches.

The youth, ages 18-24, learned how to write, act, shoot, direct, edit and create artwork for a short film called, "I Am" about their perception of others, and the perceptions that others have of them.

Renée Bever, the Youth Education Coordinator remarked, "The youth really, really liked it! They felt special and cared for, and couldn't stop talking about it."

Ariana exclaimed, "I enjoyed the overall experience of production and post-production... and all of it. I appreciate what you guys did for us today."


Create Now is proud to be a participant in the 2014 Annenberg Alchemy+ program.
