In this short film, participants highlight the services offered by a high school school-based youth services program. In one part of the video, students perform in a virtual open mic event hosted by the program. Additional interviews with students and staff showcase how the program has helped students cope with the pandemic. Staff describe their experience with re-creating programming for students to do virtually in the safety of their homes, and share that they hope to keep students engaged and motivated.
