  • CO-OP: AOC’s new creative media program for Acadiana teens ages 12-18
    • Join the Co-Op Movement!
    • Co-Op is a place for teens to get involved with other teens their age and use media to tell the stories they want to tell. Students will produce a number of projects throughout the program including a community engagement and update show, music videos, and mini-documentaries, among others.
    • “Our new program focuses on giving teens a place of their own, a place to be creative and productive with other teens,” said Ed Bowie, executive director of AOC. “This is not your normal after-school program, daycare or place to hangout. Instead Co-Op is a jumping off point for teens to discover more about creating meaningful media and more about themselves as contributing members of our community.”
    • AOC staff members along with local professionals will teach the students technical production skills from concept to post-production. AOC will then submit the students’ content to national film festivals once their projects are completed.
    • Professional development skills are also a large part of the program. Students will learn how to conduct interviews, do appropriate research, complete a finished project, and to present that project in competition. Local business professionals will work with the students to show them new career fields as well as elements of professional conduct.
    • Co-Op is open to AOC members at no cost. If applicants are not current members, student memberships are $25 a year.
    • For more information about Co-Op, email info@aocinc.org or call (337) 232-4434.
