The young filmmakers received certificates of achievement and $50 each for completing the program---paid for their efforts to preserve OMI history while learning new technology, meeting their neighbors, and getting a chance to show off their creativity.
Thanks to Amanda, and the terrific volunteer work of Carlos at the Western Addition Tech Center. WNP will partner again with the OMI Beacon Center and SafeHaven to have a similar afterschool program in the fall. We'll be showing these videos to the community in the future and will get some of these great stories on the Web site!
