Shira and Ari worked with Scenarios USA for many years, designing pand authoring numerous DVDs and creating materials for several of their gala events and curricula. Scenarios USA was a nonprofit organization that used writing and filmmaking to foster youth leadership, advocacy and self-expression in underserved teens. They asked teens to write about the issues that shape their lives for their annual “What’s the REAL DEAL?” writing contest, and thousands participated. The winning writers were partnered with some of Hollywood’s finest filmmakers to transform their stories into award-winning short films. Scenarios USA closed its doors in 2017, but you can still watch their incredible, youth-centered films on YouTube.
