The goal of SMC’s Youth Program is to empower the next generation of young people to be critical and creative producers who use the power of media to serve as active agents of change in their communities.
SMC offers a number of developmentally appropriate youth programming for youth of all ages, including targeted intensive workshops, strategic community partnerships with youth-serving agencies, teen internships, movie nights, field trips, and more.
We aim to be inclusive and responsive to the needs of young people in our community, and provide all of our programming at a sliding scale in order to be accessible to all of our cities’ residents. We also strive to be a safer space for youth, and actively wish to recruit LGBTQ+ youth, youth of color, low-income youth, and youth with disabilities. We run year round youth programming, including after school programs, vacation camp, and summer programs.
