The mission of Mythic Bridge is to provide hands-on, narrative filmmaking education to at-risk youth in NYC who are dealing with financial, emotional, physical, and/or situational hardships. The program helps these kids transform their lives as they * Come to understand the power of storytelling/filmmaking as a mechanism for self-discovery, empowerment, and healing. * Develop skills and work habits that they can carry with them beyond their experience at Mythic Bridge. * Strengthen their resilience, as evidenced by improved self-confidence and engagement in the community. Mythic Bridge offers a unique and high-quality educational experience that is free of charge to at-risk youth, ages 13-24. It focuses on both the transformational power of storytelling, and the “nuts and bolts” of film production.
