Educational support for at-risk kids
The E-Team in Oak Park is a rapidly growing program that helps at-risk kids in elementary, middle school & high school to get valuable tutoring and mentoring. The program was the 2018 winner of the Big Idea award presented by the Oak Park Community Foundation that granted a total of $50,000 over the course of three years in vital seed money to expand its reach. I've shot additional footage of the program, but the program founders wanted to capture on-camera testimonials from students and a parent to describe how they benefitted from the E-Team. This video was shown at the 2019 Big Idea event held on March 13 as a way to demonstrate how the grant from the previous year is already at work.
