The Paso Robles Youth Institute is an empowering 5 week digital media arts & workforce development experience. It is for participants entering 6th - 11th grade. Week 1 begins with a 5 day long sleep-away Wilderness Retreat focusing on promoting group cohesion and leadership skills, improving problem solving and communication skills, and developing cultural awareness and diversity. Weeks 2-5, the Youth Institute operates as a production studio M-F, 9:00am-3:00pm at Paso Robles High School. Production teams must complete projects that include a magazine and short film from the pre-production stages to a post production product. All films are submitted to Film Festivals, including the SLO International Film Festival "Filmmakers of Tomorrow Showcase."
