ParaDYM Academy is our after-school and extended day program made up of hands- on, interactive, interconnected media programs called, Co-Ops. Co-Ops are designed to empowering at-risk and marginalized youth through transmedia production and media literacy. Our Co-Ops are hands-on, therefore students learn by working on media projects for local nonprofits in need of media production.
Our community engagement strategy has 4 primary learning outcomes for all our youth participants:
Gain theory-based and practical understanding of the year's global theme
Develop self-awareness and self-reflection
Work on leadership and teamwork skills
Demonstrate a commitment to social justice
