Mentoring Video Project

The Mentoring Video Project (MVP) is an advanced media production program for 12 Baltimore City youth 14-20 years of age. Participants learn skills in digital storytelling, photography, video production, and audio production, and use these skills to tell powerful stories about the lives of young people in Baltimore. Videos by MVP youth producers are screened locally, and shown nationally and internationally through public access channels and film festivals, and on the web.

MVP meets from late September-May on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 4:30pm-7:00pm, at Wide Angle Youth Media’s main offices. MVP Participants are eligible to receive a per-class stipend or service learning hours. Applicants do not need to have prior digital media experience. In order to give participants focused and individualized support, the MVP class size is limited to 12 youth.

The 2016-2017 MVP Program is currently full and applications are no longer available.

  • Please feel free to call our offices (443-759-6700) if you have any questions.

“I enjoy the freedom I have to choose my own story, and I enjoy the help the staff gives us. What I am learning in MVP gives me an edge in high school, where we use digital media every day.”
