Youth Institute

This year-round program utilizes technology as an engagement tool to increase social, academic, and workforce skills. Using the most cutting-edge and highest level technology and software, participants learn about and create their own digital music, videos, magazines, graphic designs, and edit their photography. During the summer, an 6-week structured program, allows youth to apply for the chance to complete and earn an academic stipend. During the school year, a more casual structure allos them to seek homework help, work on individual projects, and explore new techniques.  Participants in this program emerge with improved confidence, academics and industry level technology skills.
