Next Gen programming are predominantly free, year long programs that require commitment and an interest in learning new media and technology skills while gaining access to the tech sector, industry, and career experience. First, we offer four basic tracks in Audio Engineering, Video Production, Open Source Coding and 3D Gaming & Animation, which take place twice a week from October thru May. After graduation, a paid summer internship concludes the program.
We also offer two advanced tracks that are also free and year long: The Factory, which is an advanced filmmaking program for teens, and BUMP Records, a program that focuses on cultivating musicians and performers.
For students who don’t have the time to commit to weekly classes, we also offer a Bridge program for our program alums and students who attend City College of San Francisco. Bridges participants join the Tracks students in periodic career workshops and partake in a rigorous, paid summer internship. These students are invited to come back after their internship as paid peer mentors.
Lastly, we also offer five summer digital media camps in audio, video and motion graphics for a fee that helps pay for the year round programs.EmailPrint
