The Youth Cinema Project Mission:
The Youth Cinema Project (YCP) is project based learning that produces competent, resilient, and real world problem-solvers and bridges the achievement and opportunity gaps by creating lifelong learners and the entertainment industry’s multicultural future.
The YCP a 100% student led, student run program. There are no adults writing, holding the cameras, or deciding on the shots. The ultimate goal is for our students to become self-directed learners, while finding their voices, and creating social emotional empowerment. In our project based learning, the films are not the project, the students themselves are.
