The Right Track program focuses on providing employment opportunities and professional skills training for youth in Saint Paul.

Each Summer, FilmNorth works with Saint Paul’s Right Track program to hire youth to create short artist profile videos about the McKnight Media Artist Fellows. Watch the McKnight Media Artist Fellow videos created by Right Track youth here. The youth also gain experience with interviewing, e-mailing, time management, and resume building, as well as video production and various computer software and editing skills. Right Track workers at FilmNorth also meet with local visiting artists and participate in local college visits.

Right Track testimonials:

“I am able to push myself more in film and I want to pursue it more. I am able to communicate my ideas and feel more comfortable doing so.”

“I learned more about colleges and making connections.”

“I have grown as an artist in the sense that I’ve learned more about workshopping/committing to my art, and that there are many avenues to develop and produce my work.”
