Beam Center’s mission is to crystallize self-directed growth through ambitious, collaborative project-making. We support and celebrate young people as producers of learning, culture, and change who take bold steps towards meaningful futures and help guide compassionate, equitable, and vibrant communities. Beam Center aims to help New York City kids and teens set and achieve ambitious goals in school, at work, and in life by making mentorship, creation, and collaboration central to their out-of-classroom learning and college or work-preparatory experiences. Beam Center empowers young people to do spectacular things no matter who they are or where they start. At Beam, we intend for learning to be an active, physical process of “figuring it out” and taking creative risks within a supportive environment that promotes agency and growth. We call this framework Learning Productions.
