We're gearing up for our next Film Screening...
February 1 -- May is National Foster Care Awareness Month and we use our Family Film Screenings to help shed light on young people in care, particularly older teens preparing to transition out of the system facing life on their own.
Screenings take place in local movie theatres where projects are show on the big screen! Tickets are donated by Beyond Expectations to local transitional shelters and group homes so children and families can enjoy a day at the movies without having to worry about cost.
There's even an opportunity to sponsor the refreshments so each child gets a treat!
Many older teens face unsurmountable challenges obtaining skills to land jobs or even get their foot in the door. This year, we're looking for a great partner(s) to help host our first ever 18 & Out Bowl. Proceeds will help defray cost of this year's Film Screening and help us significantly expand our Youth Leadership & Training progams where we bring industry professionals from all walks of life directly to students to give them the skills they need.
It's a great cause ... and an awesome opportunity for students, families, and caring supporters from the local community to get together for a day of fun.
