YOUTH INSTITUTE

RELATIONSHIP BUILDING AND POST-SECONDARY PREPARATION THROUGH A TECHNOLOGY LENS.

Youth Institute cohorts kick-off during our 7 week summer program.  Free for youth 7-11th grade.  Participants gain access to state of the industry equipment, learn how to create digital media using Adobe Suite, FinalCut, iMovie and many more programs.  

Upon graduation students can earn up to $500 for successfully producing a short film and design a full color magazine.  

 

This program is made possible by Kirkland Kiwanis and the generosity of many volunteer mentors and community members.
