Training for Youth
NEW THIS YEAR! DIGITAL MEDIA SUMMER CAMP FOR TEENS!
They're fun, affordable, taught by professionals and are completely hands-on. Camps are 5-day immersive trainings (lunch provided!) and will give teens a solid understanding of the basics, demonstrate how to have fun with digital tools, give an overview of how the pros in the field work and help hone the creative skills of each student. Because participants' skill levels may vary, our expert instructors will work with each student to make sure no one is left behind. It's never too early to start building a demo reel to show off talent--If desired, students will come away with at least one piece for their portfolio.
To find out more about Teen Camps and enroll, check out Digital Media Camps For Teens! Still need more info? Please email edu [at] bavc [dot] org or call 415.558.2142.
ADULT CLASSES FOR TEENS
If you are 14-17 years old and you're interested in enrolling in one of our adult classes listed in our regular course catalog, please email
to determine if you are at the skill level necessary to participate in the class. We're happy to talk with parents, too!
Because we're committed to young folks receiving professional training, these classes are offered to 14-17 year olds at 40% off the regular class price.
For young people who can not afford to pay for training, BAVC also offers free training through our Next Generation youth Programs, including:
BUMP RECORDS: Bay Unity Music Project (BUMP) Records is an after-school music performance and production program for Bay Area youth ages 14-19.
THE FACTORY: BAVC's after-school advanced video production collective for motivated youth, ages 15-19, in the Oakland Bay Area.
DIGITAL PATHWAYS: Digital Pathways is an intensive, after-school media training program for young people who want to learn skills to advance their potential for careers in technology and the media arts. Students choose from 4 tracks - video, audio, 3D gaming & animation, or open source - and participate in intensive training that leads to a portfolio of projects, and paid internships in their chosen field.
