Youth Programs

Key activities for DBC Education Impact:

Each student will participate in a pre training seminar that will cover the four phases of production where youth will learn story development, basic camera operations, basic light & sound techniques, advanced editing software, special effects and graphics, and distribution.  The program will recognize that art is a vehicle that can be used to engage youth in activities that will increase their self-esteem. The delivery of the programs will be a collaborative effort among the artists, production team members, youth, and family. Age-appropriate responsibilities will be essential in developing appropriate activities. The program will emphasize dynamic teaching tactics such as hands-on learning, apprentice relationships, and the use of technology. Each program segment will culminate in a worldwide broadcast of the internet based television shows in an effort to build participants’ self-esteem through public recognition.

Program planning will be critical and will address the following: goals of the program; site selection; population; developing relationships among team members; methods for youth involvement in planning; curriculum design; transportation; safety; incentives; behavioral requirements; program growth; balance of art program and other program objectives; balance of process and product; student recognition of achievements; family, community, and volunteer involvement.

To evaluate the programs, a committee of administrative and artistic staff (both youth and adults) will clearly define program goals and intended outcomes, and monitor and document program implementation and the service-delivery processes.
