Video: Ageless Learning Seminars Inspire

By on Tuesday, December 28, 2010

This project involved providing small video cameras to community colleges participating in the Plus 50 Initiative, a multi-year grant-funded program with AACC. The program assists baby boomers in going to college and training for new careers.  Colleges were provided a camera, setup instructions and questions, and asked to interview program participants on the challenges of going to college, what they are studying, and what their plans are for the future. College staff were also asked to share about their programs and plans. After conducting 2-3 interviews, college staff return the cameras. The videos are then edited by Steppingstone LLC and placed on AACC’s Plus 50 Initiative YouTube channel. The videos are presented in a way that is consistent for overall branding for the project. Being able to see and hear a plus 50 student talk about going to college and what they are achieving, is often one of the most effective recruitment tools for this population. This is a very cost-effective model for nonprofits and associations to consider for a project where recipients are geographically dispersed, because it does not require hiring video crews in multiple cities to collect footage.

Video Description: Bev Schuetz retired from an active career and then wondered what to do with the rest of her life. She wanted to continue performing and doing public speaking, but she wasn’t quite sure where to start. She turned to St. Louis Community College (STLCC)’s Plus 50 program and its Ageless Learning seminars for help and advice. She said it’s been a challenge to start a new business, and she’s found a lot of positive synergy and encouragement from other plus 50 students. She’d recommend STLCC’s Plus 50 Ageless Learning Seminars to anyone.
