As summer gets into full swing, summer camps are helping youth stay active and involved now that school is out. KNBA is involved in helping a middle school camp, the CITC Theatrical Music Video Camp, touch on voicework and using microphones for Public Service Announcements.
Cook Inlet Tribal Council's Schoolyard program Counselor Kimberly Smith says although CITC's summer camps have filled up already, the Schoolyard After-School Program has availability this fall - which is aimed at Alaska Native and American Indian high school-age students in the Anchorage area.
The program has many facets, including academic support, but most highlights include use of the Fab Lab, a facility that includes high tech equipment such as 3D printers and other fabrication gear.
Smith says another great benefit to students is elective credit with the Anchorage School District, which can help students graduate. More information can be found on their website:
