THE SUNSHINE SERIES (2016)

Following an impressive comeback, the Boys & Girls Club of Rosebud now has two sites in the two largest communities on Rosebud Indian Reservation. In addition to providing mentoring, academic support, outdoor stimulation, and essential life skills to the beloved Lakota youth of Rosebud, the Club brings people together and functions as a powerful hub of hope and positivity for the entire community. This series was conceived and produced as short promotional videos for the BGC to use as they see fit.
