Share Article

Endeavor utilizes "learning through media" platform to create educational opportunities and teach life skills to at-risk children.

The David Horgan Movie Program (http://www.davidhorganmovieprogram.com) has been adopted by the Springfield School systems for the first quarter of 2016 to “reach and teach” at-risk youth.

The program involves the use of music, film, writing and editing to turn school lessons into completed media productions.

“We teach real world film, music and media creation by utilizing my thirty years of experience in the entertainment industry” said David Horgan, a veteran producer of Will Smith and Mark Wahlberg music videos.“We have found an innovative way to reach these kids and improve the educational process in our schools.”

Horgan taps his industry friends on a regular basis to bring once in a lifetime experiences to the students. Past trips have included group tours to meet Tom Hanks, visits to AMC movie sets in production and visits from Michael Flaherty, president of Walden Media.

Recently, a student from the program was selected to travel to NYC to see actor Peter Scolari in his starring role as “The Wizard” in Broadways, “Wicked." In addition, the other students in the program have produced a film titled, “413” that will premiere in the YouTube Studios in NYC late June.

The program is currently operating at The Springfield Conservatory School in Springfield, MA. The program will also be offered in conjunction with the Life Vest Insideʼs national “Kindness Kids Productions” where students will focus on creating films that promote compassion and tolerance.
