American Express Grant Supports Student Filmmaking
American Express grant of $100,000 to Reel Works supports filmmaking aimed to inspire a younger and more diverse audience to explore roles in conservation.
The company is a premier partner of Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque, a bilingual movement created by the National Park Foundation to inspire people to connect with, celebrate and support America’s national parks and community-based programs, including through volunteering.
The grant complements American Express’ $5 million, multi-year commitment in support of mobilizing one million volunteers in national parks and public lands annually. American Express is also a partner of SCA, supporting the organization’s Find Your Park volunteering events nationally.
The film was created to inspire a younger and more diverse audience to explore volunteer roles and career opportunities in the conservation field and at national parks. The documentary illustrates how SCA empowers young people from all backgrounds through hands-on service to nature. ...
