E4 Youth works with area high school teachers to recruit and train creative college mentors that serve in the classroom as tutors and role models. Based on teacher’s needs, college mentors can assist either during or after school.
The Youth Media Project (YMP) bootcamp is a collaboration between E4 Youth, the Black Media Council and Movement 50 in which students earn access to SXSW. Students participate in a series of intensive day long creative bootcamps and complete mentor reviewed independent assignments/projects.
Shadow the Pros provides promising youth with mentors and tangible examples of how their creativity can lead to successful careers. Participants are assigned college/career coaches that guide them through a series of shadow experiences with top creative professionals.
