The fifth year of the Emmy-nominated Media Share grant program kicked off in May with 11 new non-profit organizations – all excited to learn new skills and become media makers!

The Media Share program is a unique, in-kind grant program designed to help selected Brooklyn nonprofit organizations learn how to create and share media that moves their mission forward. Grantees first take custom classes in the BRIC Media Center and then are paired with a Producing Mentor for additional training sessions.

This year, we welcome four new Producing Mentors, eager to begin working alongside their assigned nonprofits in the coming months.
