THIS SUMMER, we are bringing back our popular summer media workshops for youth - Media Mentors - and we have PAID Mentor slots to fill! To be eligible, you simply need to be a college student or rising high school junior or senior, with some relevant coursework under your belt and a willingness to work hard honing your skills and serving local youth.
This program is an opportunity for students interested in the media arts to get three days of training from professionals - for FREE! Even lunch is provided.
In exchange, with the support of professional staff, students put their skills to the practical test by spending the following two weeks (per session) as camp counselor team leaders, working with youth from Wilmington, Delaware to produce short videos, such as public service announcements and music videos on social issues.
At our studio screening room at Riverfront Wilmington, preparatory master classes take place 10am-3pm, and the youth camp weeks will require a 9am-4pm commitment. Complimentary lunch is again included as part of program participation and upon adequate completion of the program, they will receive a stipend of $250/session (3 days of training, two weeks of camp).
