The Story Project
January 26, 2011
After reading about The Story Project in a brochure, I was very eager to get involved. I called and spoke with the director Todd Felderstein who welcomed me into an amazing program at The Boys and Girls Club of Burbank, CA. Over the next few months, I met every Wednesday afternoon with a group of awesome 6th graders and an incredibly warm and professional writer/director who led the group from concept phase to film production.These young people were incredible leaders and listeners. They were empowered every step of the way and Glen (the writer/directer) honored their decision-making abilities and creativity. I had so much fun connecting with this incredible team. I look forward to participating in future projects!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my time spent with leaders from the organization and students who have participated in it. I've personally experienced the community of creativity, warmth, and team effort.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
hope The Story Project can become even more prevalent and keep reaching as many kids as possible.
Volunteer & I participated in making the film, "Twins." I even acted in it --my first acting gig!.
