Bridges Fellowship | BAVC

Bridges Fellowship

BAVC's Bridges Fellowship is a media production and career readiness training program for transitional aged young people in the Bay Area

Dive deep into the filmmaking field! Make connections between media-making and social justice while learning from artists and entrepreneurs.

Are you interested in learning about video production as a profession? The Bridges Fellowship is designed to help a diverse cohort of transitional-age youth (18-24 years old) learn strategies to successfully prepare for, challenge, and ultimately surmount the barriers to entering and staying in the media industry. Bridges Fellows will receive an immersive 12-week training in workplace literacy, career readiness, and communication skills while gaining experience in video pre-production, production, and post-production.

Our Fall 2020 semester of Bridges is now FULL!  We are now accepting applications for our Spring 2021 semester (beginning in February) on a rolling basis. 

Spring Semester: February 9th, 2021 -  May 14th, 2021

I’m really passionate about social issues and that’s where I found common ground with the rest of my cohort.
