Baltimore Speaks Out
The Baltimore Speaks Out Program (BSO) operates in the fall and spring, in partnership with the Enoch Pratt Free Library and provides youth ages 10-15 with free media education right in their own community.
This 10-week after school program teaches young people digital media production, critical thinking, public speaking, team- building, and leadership skills. By the end of the semester, students in the BSO program will have created their own video about youth and community concerns that will be screened locally and around the world!
Through regular attendance, students are eligible to earn service learning hours for their participation. Recent videos produced by BSOP youth have addressed bullying in school, healthy eating, education reform, and taking care of the environment. Fall programming sites for 2016 will be held at two branches of the Enoch Pratt Free Library – Govans Library and Northwood Library – and Patterson Park Public Charter School.
Fall programming sites for the Baltimore Speaks Out program are currently full and no longer accepting applications. Stay tuned for spring applications in the upcoming weeks!
