Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund a film mentoring program at Locke High School in Watts, California, in which youth will learn to produce, film, and edit a documentary film. Locke High School students will be benefited when they are provided with a creative arts opportunity during after school hours, specifically increasing protective factors for the adolescents, and incentives to pursue post-high school academics. In addition, students will have access to adults as mentors who currently work in the entertainment industry; mentors will teach film techniques as well as provide academic and emotional support. Writing a grant for an after-school program with an arts and mentoring emphasis is creative and cutting-edge.
