Project: What If
Program: Youth Challenge, 2017
This group of teenagers wanted to give Chattanooga’s youth a platform to share stories of their experiences, both positive and negative. With help from a few mentors at The Bethlehem Center, they created a series of short, self-directed films featuring Chattanooga’s youth that brought awareness to the need for additional resources for youth programming. They also designed retail items, and develop a marketing plan to sell them, with all proceeds benefiting youth organizations.
The Causeway Challenge is an ideas contest centered around a specific question, that empowers individuals to pilot their ideas for community change, with grassroots funding and hands-on coaching.
