Media Minds is a program which provides team-based workshops that strive to help students integrate into and engage in their community. These workshops enhance their interpersonal and teamwork skills through the use of film education. Our objective is to give students a more effective transition into high school by empowering them to speak up, share their ideas and think creatively to overcome the barriers they face.
The skills acquired through the Media Minds include: storyboarding, lighting, sound, filming and using basic editing software. Students will be encouraged to engage in conversations with the University Mentors and guest speakers, and build relationships for opportunities beyond the program.
This program is geared towards students in grades 6-9 and runs at multiple schools in in the Surrey School District from October - April every year.
