Afterschool Programs: 2016-2017

In addition to Book Club, the Foundation is currently offering two new afterschool programs on photography and filmmaking. Both programs run every Thursday starting January 12 until June 1, 2017 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. There is a $100.00 enrollment fee for either program.

Book Club

Celebrate reading with the organization’s book club. Our foundation has teamed up with The Blazers of Los Angeles to provide students with a setting in which they can have lively discussions about the same books and complete fun-filled activities related to the book. Club members will enjoy activities and snacks during each club meeting. The Book Club is $25.00 to join (some scholarship funding is available) and is open to ages 9-14.

Photography Program (NEW)

Our Photography Program allows participants to receive 14 weeks of full access to equipment (provided by The Blazers and Dr. BSH Foundation), learning materials, and expert teaching staff, as well as a DSLR camera to use during the program.

Together, students will share their images and ideas about their lives, building self-confidence as well as technical skills. This program is designed to have young people learn to think critically and creatively through photography.
