Service Cinema Series
The AmeriCorps Service Cinema Series was developed in order to provide a format to meet the department’s mission of providing opportunities for students to learn how to become productive citizens in the global world by engaging the students in educational, multicultural, and service-based experiences. The Service Cinema Series meets all the components of the mission statement as the program is designed to give our Clayton State students the opportunity to learn about diverse social issues that are impacting our world by viewing documentaries and media clips that raise social awareness on both a national and international scale. The Service Cinema Series also provides a safe and interactive forum for students to engage in intensive and intentional dialogue about the social issues as well as addressing ways to impact change and take action in their community to combat the injustice.
Social issues that have been covered through the AmeriCorps Service Cinema include: the sex trafficking, child soldiers and the civil war raging in central Africa, mobile disability, eating disorders, the public education system, the environment, and autism.
