To support and embrace youth voices we created PhillyCAM’s Tech Lounge. Our students learn to access, analyze, create and share digital media content with thoughtfulness and social responsibility.
How do I get involved?
The Tech Lounge benefits young people and by extension the larger Philadelphia community by providing much needed quality after-school activities, intensive production classes and internship opportunities. We offer instruction on basic storytelling, photography, video production and media literacy.
- 1. After-school workshops allow students to explore different media tools, genres and techniques while gaining essential skills to decode media messages.
- 2. Youth production classes are multi-week hands-on training opportunities for students to learn specific media skills in a project-based environment. Registration is required for class participation.
- 3. Internships allow youth to identify and explore media production careers while gaining the comprehensive skills needed to enter the workforce.
In order to participate in activities you must be a PhillyCAM member. The youth membership is $15 for ages 14-21 which expires 12 months after the sign-up date. The Tech Lounge is a creative space for all. Please inquire about PhillyCAM's work exchange program if the youth membership fee causes a financial hardship.

Or if you choose not to join online, you can pay by mail or in-person.
