WHO WE ARE

​Content Creators Academy (CCAJC) is a non-profit youth mentorship program that provides resources for young individuals interested in the creative and digital media space with an entrepreneurial spirit.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

Young people in Jersey City are passionate, enthusiastic, creative, and brilliant. Unfortunately some of them lack access to resources, knowledge, mentorship, and the supportive environment required to successfully build skills and experience in digital media, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important to our youth.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

CCAJC is an after school program from 4PM to 6PM Tuesdays and Thursdays in downtown Jersey City.

Our instructors create and manage the curriculum and students learn a variety of specific skills related to digital media and communications from professional mentors. Class size is limited to ensure students receive the care and attention they need to be creative and develop understanding of digital tools.

Students will leave with a portfolio of work and experience they can apply to college or professional applications.
