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 video 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. This year we are located at the Reisterstown Road and Herring Run branches of the Enoch Pratt Free Library and a program that is open for only Patterson Park Public Charter students in partnership with the Patterson Park branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Recent videos produced by BSOP youth have addressed bullying in school, gang activity, education reform, and taking care of the environment.
