Kenosha, WI – November 2, 2018 – The Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha received a Best Buy Foundation Community Grant to support the continuation and enhancement of the Digital Media Matters Program in the BGCK Teen Center.
The Digital Media Matters Program provides hands-on learning opportunities for underserved teens by allowing them to explore the world of photography and videography, including all aspects of editing, production and post-production.
Club teens will use state of the art equipment to produce photographs, music tracks, and videos. Teens also have the opportunity to go on field trips and interact with local artists to further their training they receive at the BGCK.
To date, the program has allowed 75+ local youth to learn the various aspects of music production, photography and videography that they would not have had the opportunity to do so if not for the Best Buy Foundation and the BGCK Digital Media Matters Program. Digital media programming is offered daily in the Teen Center at various times.
“My peers and I use the equipment and the program as a creative outlet,” said Club teen and Junior Staff Member, Rodney Spears. “When they learn how to use professional equipment, it instills confidence.”
