Community Programs

Our community (out-of-school) programs provide opportunities for young people to have a more immersive artmaking experience, while also investigating and being supported in their transition to adulthood. In DTE’s community programs, students can learn job skills and earn a stipend while receiving pre-professional training in digital media.

In Transition: Media

The ITM program grew out of our summer Digital Boot Camp, a collaboration with Red Hook Initiative, South Brooklyn Community High School, and Good Shepherd Services.

The 2018 spring session is April 11 – May 22 on Tuesdays & Saturdays.

In Transition: Media provides 45 hours of instruction and project-based learning in the digital media production cycle, camera operation, audio recording, and video editing. Students gain the skills to work on a professional film set while creating original documentary films that tackle real-life issues.

The program is open to anyone between the ages of 15-25. All participants earn hourly wages, made possible by Red Hook Initiative and South Brooklyn Community High School’s Learning to Work program.

Digital Boot Camp

In 2013, DTE, in collaboration with Red Hook Initiative, the South Brooklyn Community High School, and Good Shepherd Services launched a summer Digital Boot Camp to provide Red Hook teens and young adults with 80 hours of rigorous instruction in digital media production, culminating in the creation of promotional videos for local businesses and social service organizations.

DTE’s Digital Boot Camp program consists of in-school digital media residencies at NYC high schools as well as community-based media programs. All participants earn hourly wages for their participation in the program, made possible by the Red Hook Initiative and the South Brooklyn Community High School’s Learning to Work program.
