Bayview Hunters Point Center for Arts & Technology (BAYCAT)
The mission of Bayview Hunters Point Center for Arts and Technology is to inspire and educate underserved youth and adults to become productive community members and to improve the quality of life for themselves and their communities by providing education in arts, technology and enterprise in an inspirational learning environment.
BAYCAT is a community media producer of San Francisco – developing messages by the people, for the people. A dynamic emerging social enterprise, BAYCAT educates, empowers, and employs. We offer free classes in film/TV production and graphic/web design to the youth and young adults in Bayview Hunters Point, historically one of the most underserved communities in the city, and other underserved neighborhoods. BAYCAT then hires our graduates through our enterprise arm, Studio BAYCAT, to produce professional marketing communication materials for clients that include businesses, government, local Bayview merchants and nonprofits. BAYCAT inspires young adults to stay in school and become lifelong learners, and empowers them to use the power of media and design to shape their communities.
