Mission Statement

SKYLAB Youth Production Studio is an arts and technology program with a mission to give formerly homeless youth living in Cottage Housing's Serna Village program access, skills and support to become the next generation of creative community leaders.

Description

SKYLAB works toward achieving this mission through providing state-of-the-art technology equipment, creative youth-driven projects, ongoing professional mentoring, and intensive leadership training programs. SKYLAB Youth Production Studio uses a youth development model that recognizes young people as valuable assets with important ideas and therefore involves youth in all aspects of program development and implementation. The name SKYLAB, for example, was created out of a brainstorm session with the youth in which we strove to synthesize the concepts of ? ????expanding our horizons? ???? (SKY) and ? ????the community and facility which provides the means for this action? ???? (LAB). SKYLAB youth work within a safe, creative, and nurturing space in which they are encouraged to develop their own ideas and projects as well as work in teams to ask questions and present creative solutions to community problems.
