Raelene Holmes


YDW Teaching Assistant

Creating three consecutive documentaries on topics that personally affect her, Raelene began her social justice journey as a high school student at EVC. She participated in a wide variety of EVC programs including the New Media Arts Apprenticeship, Youth Documentary Workshop and Professional Development Program. She went on to pursue a Baccalaureate Degree in Theater to advocate for social change through acting, directing, and most importantly, playwriting. Raelene says, “the social justice area I care about most is ageism because our society often views elders as burdens instead of highly experienced individuals that can be great assets to the workplace -- or even just to hang out with, I learn a lot from my elders!”
