TEEN R.E.A.C.H. provides film making programming for Oklahoma City students. Using an innovative, mentoring model, we challenge at-risk youth to go beyond perceived limitation and have their voices heard. We envision the program developing into a functioning youth film festival featuring the projects of students across Oklahoma City. Read the Oklahoma Gazette feature of Teen R.E.A.C.H.
The Oklahoma Arts Council has been instrumental in the survival of our Teen REACH program. In 2015 we received a grant to assist with expenditures in the program so that we could continue to offer it to students for free! What many do not know is that the Oklahoma Arts Council helped our organization to build the foundation for the Teen REACH Youth in Film Program. We hope to continue to work with the Oklahoma Arts Council and we hope to continue to grow this remarkable program!
The Oklahoma Arts Council supports many art organizations across Oklahoma by providing grants and guidance to help build programming! Their support of organizations such as Inclusion in Art ensures that Oklahoma is better served by the arts.
