DESCRIPTION:   The purpose of this project was to use the allure of the ‘MTV Cribs’ television program to comically illustrate the importance of hard work, education and positive values to new YouthBuild members.  Two leaders from YouthBuild’s National Alumni Exchange spoof celebrities and share their personal stories in an effort to deliver their message.
