Dida Academy (Crown Heights)

from 3,750.00

Join us in joyful co-working and skill-building workshops as we create self-directed portfolio projects. Teens and young adults are supported in pursuing their interests with an eye toward self-sufficiency and financial independence. We create a positive, relaxed, and engaged atmosphere through student-led conversation and improv-based communication games. Students develop their own intrinsic motivation through collaborative goal-setting, real-time project planning, and natural feedback from community members during public presentations. We facilitate student interests ranging from arts and academics to activism and entrepreneurship.
