Thank you for applying to Next Gen's Tracks, a free after-school media arts education program in San Francisco, available for people ages 14-17 years old. You will learn how to tell your own story and stories of people you care about through audio, video, design and gaming using industry-standard equipment and software in a supportive, collaborative environment. Under the instruction of award-winning filmmakers, coders, animators, practicing artists, and musicians, Next Gen participants receive unparalleled technical training in a creative community of peers, along with opportunities for professional growth and direct access to industry professionals. Best of all, BAVC's youth programs are entirely free of cost (and provide snacks!) for all participants.
Please note that for parts of the application you might need information from a parent/guardian/ally, so make sure they're available to help out while you're filling it out. If accepted, a parent/guardian/ally will also need to be available for orientation night.
Deadline to apply for Spring 2019: Friday, January 20, 2019*
*Applications will remain open all year round in order to assure that classes are filled and that all interested parties have access to their desired track.
