Our Educational Approach
Keepin It Reel is an innovative way to involve young people in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The program uses the arts as a way to motivate youth to become actively involved in their community as peer leaders.
The Pilot Program, launched in The Fall of 2014, featured students from Urgent Inc.’s Rites to Passage Leadership Program. First, they attended lectures by staff from the University of Miami’s Promote 2 Prevent Program (P2P), and then worked on developing a story into a SPEC script.
The script was developed by the University of Miami’s Film School and On the Move Productions supporter, David Frankel (of Devil Wears Prada/ Marley & Me fame).
The film produced- 2 Similar Strangers – is now an educational ice-breaker the youth leaders can use in their own educational presentations.
