Our programs are rooted in:

  • Project-Based Learning: Learn by doing! Project-based learning improves cooperative learning skills and enhances critical thinking and communication.
  • New Technologies: Our students work with professional-grade equipment and software, enabling them to produce high-quality content and learn valuable technical skills.
  • Social Justice: Our workshops empower youth and teens to explore how their stories fit into the larger tapestry of local, national, global stories.
  • Culminating Events: Each program concludes with screenings of student projects for a family and friends!
