Media Arts Apprenticeships

During this intensive credit-bearing spring apprenticeship, high school students capture the landscape, nature, and usage of our parklands through photography and videography. Students who successfully complete the apprenticeship progress to paid internships as peer mentors and documentarians.

Teens discover their unique talents, develop their creativity, explore their parks, and gain valuable technology skills. These programs provide a safe space where teens can share with one another, develop leadership skills, forge a group identity, and serve their communities and parks.
