Program Description: 

BAVC’s Digital Pathways afterschool digital media program offers skills training for young people from diverse neighborhoods across the Bay Area to increase their storytelling, social justice and media arts skills. Participants are encouraged to develop their artistic talents while receiving advanced, industry-standard training in digital media production. During 120 training hours (over 8 months from October to May) students will learn basic and advanced video and audio production, and game coding and design. There is an all-girl gaming track designed to encourage women to join the digital media field. 

We also focus on developing the “soft” skills (e.g. presentation skills, interview skills) students need to successfully collaborate and produce high-quality creative products and professional portfolios. Tailored to each participant’s interests, BAVC’s pathway model helps young adults pursue new education and employment opportunities while using media as a tool for self-expression and discovery. Soft-skill workshops include career and college readiness panels, and field trips, and students are placed in paid internships or capstone experiences during the summer months.
