If this is the short I remember with Philip McKeon, I thought it was originally billed as "The Bet"... basically he's a rich kid riding in a car with his friends through downtown LA (complete with opening song from Missing Persons "Walking in LA", as in "nobody walks in LA"), and they bet him he can't last a weekend on Skid Row. He takes the challenge and meets some interesting people while learning things about himself. Some obvious socioeconomic drama there as well. I haven't seen the short in decades, and can't find it on YT to give a proper review. But since the info on this IMDb page is pretty sparse at the moment, I wanted to add a little something. I enjoyed it a lot and it was a typical 80s arc about having some human compassion.
