High school student produces inspirational Create a Commuter video
This spring, we worked with Maya Rait, a talented sophomore student at Catlin Gabel, on a Create a Commuter video project. Every year as part of the media curriculum, Catlin Gabel students develop videos for community partners. This year they are creating video pieces for nonprofit organizations where they regularly perform community service to inspire increased volunteerism among their students and other young people.
Maya expressed a strong interest in telling the story of our Create a Commuter program. She joined our workshop on March 1 with S.E. Works’ Portland Partners Re-Entry Initiative – a program dedicated to helping people successfully re-enter the Portland community after incarceration. We are quite pleased with the video – check it out below!
