LAUSD / USC Media Arts & Engineering Magnet

Ride along with USC Cadets

USC Cadets give teens “a step up on what they want to do” and offer a chance to pursue a career in law enforcement. Through discipline, hard work, sweat, and tears, SC Cadets empower teens and helps them become future leaders in their communities and to excel in their career choices.


Students from LAUSD / USC Cinematic Arts & Engineering Magnet spent the year finding organizations around their neighborhoods that offered opportunities for teens to gain experiences outside of the classroom.  After researching these organizations, students produced, shot and edited documentaries to showcase the amazing work being done by area students. Our ultimate goal is to help raise awareness for all teens about these opportunities to improve the health, education, career readiness, and safety of themselves, their peers, their families, and their neighborhoods.


Produced and shot by Jessica Munoz and Arely Mondragon

The equipment used to make this documentary was acquired in help from a generous grant from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
