**This position will be: Hybrid: In-Person and Remote**
The After School Arts Program (ASAP) launched in January 2021, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. We received a $15K Grant from the Boston Public Health Commission to offer virtual filmmaking workshops to disadvantaged youth impacted by Covid-19 (17 - 24). ASAP had perfect attendance with 15 students for several weeks. The workshop was sponsored by Final Draft, the leading writing software used by professional storytellers and Hollywood studios around the world. Final Draft gifted our students with the free program for a year. From January to February 2021 we offered high quality education in the art of filmmaking and storytelling, in addition to offering a 1 hour mentor session, for 4 consecutive Saturdays. Our creative mentors are working film directors, producers, actors and screenwriters who have written for NAACP nominated shows, including HBO's "LoveCraft Country". Since our launch, one of our students has nearly completed her first book and another has gone on to work in a few theatrical productions at her college. We recognize that this is a delicate transition period for youth easing out of isolation and back into school. Our launch year was successful, however inadequate funding caused a halt in services. In order to prevent a gap in services, we were able to receive a micro grant of $4000 to continue the Final Draft writing program. This year, we are excited to expand our program to more students throughout Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan. Our goal is to offer 3 workshops per year to 16+ students which will take place in the Summer, Fall and Winter Season each year. We are now able to provide 200 Boston Public School Students with the gift of Final Draft. We have an optional Expressive Arts Therapy component.
