Program Director, CIP Long Beach
During the fall term, students at CIP Long Beach participated in filming a video to showcase their center, and their progress in the program. All of the students were anxious to be part of this project and spoke from their hearts to tell their story of success. The CIP Long Beach center has incredible pride in providing quality programming to assist students in building skills toward independent living. The focus of the video was to highlight students in their daily living as they learn how to master social skills, wellness goals, banking, budgeting, and building supportive relationships that will carry them throughout their life journey.
Once completed, we premiered the video with all the glitz and glamour of a true Hollywood experience, along with a red carpet event and a celebration party. During the premiere students were thrilled to see their stories come to life. In true celebrity style many of them were interviewed by the “media” (staff) and had these quotes to offer:
“So cool… can’t wait to share it with my friends and family”
CIP Long Beach is truly a place of growth and success, with talented staff that are dedicated and passionate to the mission. We hope you enjoy the video and invite you to tour our program and meet our celebrities in person.
