Kickstarter of the Week is a regular series highlighting the technology, creative and innovation Kickstarter campaigns in Baltimore that might be worth your support. This week’s project comes from the GiveCorps crowdfunding tool instead. See other Kickstarters of the Week here.
When it comes to practical application of skills that could lead directly to jobs later in life, Remington-based Wide Angle Youth Media wants to be ahead of the curve.
It trains middle and high school students in Baltimore city schools in media production (audio and video) and photography. Now, in conjunction with several city school students, Wide Angle Youth Media is lending its equipment and expertise to help produce a film about school-age Baltimoreans who have gotten caught up in the “cycle of violence” in this city.
To complete the project, Wide Angle Youth Media is raising $3,636 through the crowdfunding platform GiveCorps, based in Charles Village.
Most of the money will be spent on two months’ worth of professional mentoring and “program facilitation” for the students producing the film, according to Wide Angle’s GiveCorps page.
