Beulah Project Documentary and Performing Arts Collaborative
The Beulah Project Documentary and Performing Arts Collaborative (BPDPAC) is a community-based initiative to empower teens in distressed communities by teaching them the skills necessary to create compelling documentaries and to develop their creative performing talents. Teens who display an affinity for either the documentary or performing arts will be offered an opportunity to participate in the “Imagine If...” Mentor/Mentee program.
"Imagine If…" Mentor/Mentee Program
There is much to be gained from providing real life role models for youth to emulate and aspire to. One of the goals of the Beulah Project's Documentary and Performing Arts Collaborative (BPDPAC) is to transition participants into the “Imagine If...”Mentor/Mentee program.
The purpose of the “Imagine If...” Mentor/Mentee Program is to boost the self-esteem of teens by connecting them with successful community members who by their example display the character and work ethic that will serve to motivate and inspire program participants. By focusing on the everyday contributions of successful community members, participants will utilize their newfound skills in documentary filmmaking, recording and photography to document their experiences and thereby reinforcing their learning experiences with their community member/mentor.
Finally, The “Imagine If...” Mentor/Mentee program encourages young people to dare to dream while deriving substantive and tangible benefits by building a mentor/mentee relationship with a concerned community member who potentially becomes a suitable, positive role model in their daily lives.
