Innovations Mentorships Include Exploration in Film Making

Students in Innovations 7th and 8th grades participate in a mentorship program aimed at exploring areas of passion and interest in the community. Students develop a resume of skills and interests and interview prospective mentors in the community under whom they will work every Friday during school hours to learn their trade.


7th grader Micah Brackett was interested in film-making and photography. He took the opportunity to travel with Uncle Eli's elementary surfing interest group to photograph and video the students as they learned to surf at local area beaches. Micah then used this underwater video and photography to design a video demonstrating the skills he learned during his mentorship.
