The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Centerstage Media project empowers at risk youth with performing arts and media training, to serve their community professionally and profitably.
Our goal is to meet a need- affordable video production for nonprofits and businesses, while training at risk to meet this need! Centerstage Media Project brings in the best mentors in media to harness many life skills associated media arts. The workshops are held in a Dave & Buster environment and include a hot meal and free game card for use afterward. As the students gather in this fun and supportive atmosphere, they learn to speak from the heart; to look in a camera and seeing the faces it broadcasts to, overcoming fear, shooting spontaneously and conversationally, and how to make a compelling case. These skills will be used a lifetime. And, included in our history are students from the project who have indeed landed professional film and television jobs.
