Mission Statement

The Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) is the nation's largest noncommercial media arts center dedicated to providing access to media, education, and technology. We are a production facility, an affordable training center, a pioneer in technology-based workforce development, and a critical resource for independent mediamakers.

Description

To address the persistent digital divide that is leaving underserved youth out of opportunities for education, development, and self-expression in our digital future, BAV's YouthLink program is connecting low-19) with motivational experiences using media technology and new pathways to personal and creative development. YouthLink provides students with 100 hours of hands-on, project-based, and arts-focused training in web and video skills, and the opportunity to produce a portfolio of media projects, including personal web pages, digital public service announcements, streamed video, and a collaborative online YouthZine (www.youthzine.org). After training students complete a 60 hour internship in the media field.
