BCAPteen Creative Leadership Project is a 6-week, full-day summer program for teens blending digital media & communications, personal & professional skills, and youth leadership through the lens of filmmaking. Over the course of the summer 20 teens earn a stipend and volunteer hours while becoming knowledgeable on our six partner institutions, building skills, producing creative work that reflects their interests, and contributing back to the BCAP community. Our home base is BPL Central Library's beautiful new Shelby White and Leon Levy Information Commons learning lab,л_in partnership with the five otherл_incredibleл_cultural institutions on the BCAP Campus. BCAPteen is coordinated andл_supervisedл_by ourл_BCAP Summer Camp Directorsл_at BPL, with support from education staff at our five partner institutions. л_Curriculum and daily activities areл_facilitated by two experienced, talented, and FUN educators who specialize in media & communications, and working with teens.л_Two talented young adult interns will also be helping with the program. Plus, participants willл_interact with experts at our 6 partner institutions, representingл_a variety ofл_departments and career paths. BCAP educators and internsл_participate in a week of specialized training, including health & safety, positive community-building, bullying prevention, disability inclusion and special needs, teambuilding strategies, curriculum development,л_and more. All staff undergo background and reference checks, and a selective application process. Want to work for BCAPteen? Check out our jobs and internships page. BCAP Adventures come from backgrounds as diverse as Brooklyn itself! We welcomeл_teens from all cultures, economic backgrounds, and family structures. We believe that one of the best ways to learn about diversity is by building friendships with diverse groups of people. We build a sense of community centered on common interests, respect for differences, learning, and having fun! A detailed program information packet will be available for download in March.
