About

BCAPteen Creative Leadership Project is a 6-week, full-day summer program for teens blending digital media & communications, personal & professional skills, and youth leadership through the lens of documentary filmmaking.

Over the course of the summer 20 teens earn a stipend and volunteer hours while becoming knowledgeable on our six partner institutions, building skills, producing creative work that reflects their interests, and contributing back to the BCAP community.

Our home base is BPL Central Library's beautiful new Shelby White and Leon Levy Information Commons learning lab, in partnership with the five other incredible cultural institutions on the BCAP Campus.
