HOME, Inc. is a 35-year-old non-profit arts organization whose mission is to help teens develop creative, multidisciplinary arts and education projects that foster teamwork and communication skills, community building, insight into critical issues, and ways to express those issues to others. For HOME, the arts are, at once, both a vital means of self-expression and a tool for education and self-realization. HOME, has a long history of working in education, the media arts and media literacy in the Boston Public Schools. Our mission is to improve the quality and relavance of the educational experience, to help young people become better problem solvers and capable and creative adults and provide research and programming in the arts to achieve this goal.
HOME, Inc. runs three programs.
Our Media Lab Partnership works with several schools in Boston where we place Media Lab Coodinators, who spend a year working as community service volunteers. Our Media Lab Coordinators work with students to develop creative media projects that foster teamwork and communication skills.
Our Teen TV is a 6-week summer intensive program that provides work experience, occupational training and vocational exploration through an intensive workshop that is modeled after the "creative team" approach that is prevalent in the media industry. Each of our team members is a Teen TV Production Assistant and receives training and experience in television production, digital field production and multimedia. They research, write, direct and produce public service announcements and community service programs for cablecast and webcast on Boston Neighborhood Network Television, the government channel and on the internet.
Our Media Mentors program matches our high school students with a professional or college student from the field of media. Mentors help students clarify life goals particularly as it relates to career paths in the media.
