We have been taking general surveys about which local organizations have programs that are beneficial for young women.
Part of our final data will be seeing how many new girls sign up for each of the six community partners that we will be making documentaries about and that will be attending our Film Festival / Community Fair.
After our event, a number of girls have come up to our USC MAE GBLA girls and asked for advice for signing up for the community partners showcased at our event. Many have expressed interest in organizations like Red Shield, School on Wheels, and Write Girls, and others are patiently waiting for the next school year for the opportunity to be a mentor at 24th Street Theater and to join USC MAE's Mesa club. Ghetto Film School has specifically received a number of applicants from those that attended the screening, and many of those girls have been selected for the interviewing process and are now excitedly waiting to hear whether or not they were accepted by the program. Overall, we feel as if our event was successful in opening the eyes of young girls to the amazing unique programs that their communities have to offer. We hope to reach an even broader audience as we've just launched our YouTube channel, allowing anyone who wasn't at the event to learn more about our amazing community partners.
