Help support and establish our Filmmaking Learning Center for Youth in Boston
Founded in 2007, the Motion Picture Association of Haiti, Inc. seek to advocate for the welfare of the Haitian Filmmakers, organize workshops for inner city children and youth, thereby educating them about the arts of filmmaking, and assist Haitian American filmmakers to market their finish products on the International Community.

One of our most important goals is to produce shorts films documentary to educate the community on those issues:
• Domestic Violence
• Drugs and Alcohol abuse
• Teen pregnancy prevention
• Health Care
• High School Drop out
• Bullying

Learning Center project summary
One of the most important aspects of the learning center is to provide opportunities for young people to further develop their creative skills and talents in arts.

The Center will offer after-school program, weekend and summer classes to more than 300 students a year, 90 percent of whom come from low-income households. 
The Center will bring high-quality arts education to families who would otherwise not have these opportunities.

We believe that young people need a space to express them self that can keep them away from peer pressure and other negative influences. The learning center is not only met to educate young people but it’s also a place where they can develop relationship among them self and work with adult who can serve as mentor.

We will provide video and filmmaking classes to the disadvantage young people in Boston.
