A visit to the Oaks Christian School’s first ever Film Festival!

After approximately two years of not being able to connect with youth in person, Mentor USA is happy to finally be back visiting schools and meeting inspiring students and young people! During May, we paid a visit to Oaks Christian School in California as they arranged their first-ever Film Festival.

In May, we had the privilege of being invited to the first-ever Film Festival arranged by Oaks Christian School in Los Angeles, California. We enjoyed some amazing movies, music videos, musical performances, documentaries, and short movies. All of which have been written, directed, produced, filmed, managed, performed and acted out by the phenomenal high school students at Oaks Christian School and their Institute of Arts and Innovation. 

It was truly inspiring seeing all these talented young people and how they had put their time and effort into pursuing their passions and creativity, as well as what they with the right support and empowerment from teachers, parents, and mentors, are able to accomplish.
