Not Your Average College Bound Film Series

Mateel Community Center’s Youth Alive! and TRiO Talent Search present Not your Average College Bound Film Series, Orange County (2002) Mateel Community Center/6PM/Free Orange County (2002) Mateel Community Center/6PM/Free Youth Alive! will be combining forces with TRiO Talent Search this Sunday, November 24th at the Mateel Community Center to start off the beginning of a 5-part film series. Youth Alive! (YA!) is a grant funded program designed to connect the youth of Southern Humboldt and Northern Mendocino county to the healthy and engaging activities in their community, specifically focusing on experiences with arts & culture and outdoor adventures. TRiO Talent Search is also a grant-funded program that focuses on connecting high school students to postsecondary education. This Sunday, join us for the ridiculous and, at times, far-fetched comedy Orange County (starring Jack Black and Colin Hanks, 2002 MTV Production). The YA!/TRiO movie night series at the Mateel will offer the opportunity to enjoy the screening of a fun-to-watch, yet relevant, film that connects to the college bound process. Following each film, there will be a casual Q&A discussion with a panel of guest speakers (ranging from college graduates, admission counselors, college professors, and even high school students). This event is free and open to everyone—students, parents, and community members are encouraged to join us. Doors open at 5:30pm; Film starts at 6pm.
