Freedom Through Expression Broadcast and production program

Year round after school/weekend

Freedom Through Expression Broadcast (FTEB) is Hallah Edutainment’s media program, offering students a hands-on learning opportunity in broadcasting, journalism, video production and the recording fields. FTEB uses the latest industry technology to engage students’ participation and cultivate their self-confidence, leadership abilities and critical thinking.  Students practice civic engagement, public speaking and citizenship by asserting their voices in our American democracy through gathering and distributing facts and expressing their opinions.   

FTEB equips students with the tools needed to produce radio talk shows, music videos, news magazines and public affairs programming. Students learn to identify newsworthy stories, arrange interviews and write articles using the same standards as industry professionals. Students feel acknowledged and proud to see their finished work published in the FTEBroadcast blog and submitted to local and national news sources. Audio and video projects are broadcast via Hallah Edutainment’s Enhanced Internet Streaming Capacity.

Freedom Through Expression Broadcast is more than just an independent internet radio/video station. It is also a growing and safe social media network designed for students and their nationwide peers. FTEB will work within strict school administration guidelines in creating links for teachers, parents and students to share broadcasting strategies and successes with other schools. Using this supervised technology, a high school student council in California can see how a group of students in Maine covered their local mayoral debate.  Programs offered through Hallah Edutainment allow students to grow through the contribution of their gifts. Developing a student's creative side is the surest way to unleash their own unique skills and potentialities.

 

Hip-Hop Forum Theatre

Year round after school/weekend

Hip-Hop Forum Theater is an infusion of two artistic forums of expression, which were born out of a need for those who feel disenfranchise. And those who see themselves voiceless in the theatre of the World and the direction of SocioPolitico-Economic policies that dictated their day to day existence in life. This sense of helplessness and despair is a reality for many from the smallest stage of home to the larger stages of community, town, county, state, country and the great international stage. Students wonder, how and where do they fit in to life’s dramatic stage production and who’s going to hear their voice?

Hip-Hop Forum Theatre has amazed parents, educators, social workers and psychiatric PhDs at the FUN and EXCITEMENT this workshop creates and its therapeutic value with even the youngest of ages.

Emotional Identity

Only available to license drug rehabilitation and emotional wellness facilities

Emotional Identity is a 12 week program designed to help students acknowledge, confront, and start the processes of addressing repressed or hidden emotions that are the root cause of attitudes and behaviors; behaviors that impede the process of self-healing and spiritual growth. The workshops are implemented to help each youth achieve self esteem, self-respect, as well as promote traits of self-motivation through the art of language and music.

Emotional Identity is built on the foundation of four modules: Truthfulness and Inspiration; Trust and Writing; Humbleness and Sharing; and Giving and Performance. The program was conceived to teach students how to focus on helping themselves, expressing themselves, believing in themselves, by trusting themselves.

Literacy, the Art of Hip-Hop

Year Round -Day And After School/Weekend

It is the objective of Literacy, The Art of Hip-Hop to merge today’s definition of literacy to yesterday’s fundamental core of literacy. The root of all learning is Reading, Writing and Comprehension. "The Art of Hip-Hop" uses the culturally enriched socio political music of Hip-Hop to expand on the contributions to the world by people of all cultures by focusing on the historical, social and educational aspects of the music and its call to a generation of visionaries to aspire to be entrepreneurs, professionals, and achieve academic excellence.

Farming the Wilderness

Summer Day Camp

The Farming the Wilderness Program is an extension of the Working Horizon curriculum. Environmental Education is the key and Farming the Wilderness cultivates the sense of natural curiosity as well as environmental stewardship. Nature and its many resources are presented with forest hikes and kayak tours led by certified state guides.

Open discussions and exercises relating to the orderly compliance and adherence of work place rules and how these rules transfer into the overall governance of societal law and constitutional rights are a topic of discussion during collective time of chores and meal conversation.
