Our Educational Programs:
YouthForce sees underserved and at-risk teens paired with organizations and relevant local issues in need of professional and compelling media campaigns. YouthForce teams are guided through an intensive multi-week program, learning the ins-and-outs of video production technologies and practices, meeting with clients, and developing and producing a professional media product. Their work is important and celebrated, expanding their relationship and appreciation for their community – an experience that can continue to shape the rest of their lives and expand the many opportunities ahead of them.
ShortCuts is an intensive three-week summer course in partnership with local production companies, designed for youth ages 7-14, in which they learn to brainstorm, write, develop, produce and edit a short movie. Designed to give youth a fun and meaningful glimpse into the exciting and dedicated task of filmmaking.
FeMedia focuses on women ages 15 and beyond, introducing them to the world of digital arts and video production.
