Our Featured Experiences:
Music Mixing and Recording
In the summer of 2018, BOLD MYNDS partnered with DreamCatcher Entertainment located in East Meadow, NY. This was where the youth of BOLD MYNDS had the opportunity to learn about music engineering and mixing. Our youth gained hands-on experiencing recording, writing their own songs and performing, taught by an industry professional, Joe Targove. The youth was able to record the BOLD MYNDS new theme song. They created the instrumentals, the lyrics, and full sound. With the amazing assistance of Joe, the students were able to produce two songs.
Sheena’s Books For Thought Book Club
The mind is a powerful thing. Why not continue to grow throughout the summer with some interesting, thought-provoking books?! This book club is lead by Sheena Esther, a recent graduate from SUNY Old Westbury with a Bachelor’s Degree in English. This session was held in the month of July and August 2018. The youth was able to successfully complete the book “In Order to Live” by Yeonmi Park.

Our Exclusive Experiences:
The Peoples Film Festival-A Virtual Reality Experience:
BOLD MYNDS heard a group of panelists speak about the development of VR Films. The youth had the opportunity to learn and explore more about gaming, tech, art and much more. During this trip, some of our youth took the subway for the FIRST time! We taught them proper etiquette while traveling and using public transportation.
Good Morning America (GMA) Summer Concert Series feat. NE-YO:
College was out for the summer, school testing was done, and BOLD MYNDS was able to start off the summer experiencing NE-YO live in concert!
Know Your Worth Workshop:
BOLD MYNDS participated in the necessary dialogue with men and women about vision and worth. This event taught them to be bold, focus on their vision and not allow anyone or anything to get in the way. This event, just like all others, definitely fit our mission and vision for our youth.
Criminal Justice and Reform:
BOLD MYNDS participated in a community event where Criminal Justice professionals spoke about the effective ways of making changes in the community. The youth had the chance to experience an actual car stop workshop, where volunteer law enforcement professionals acted out real-life scenarios with our teens. Our teens also had the opportunity to reverse the role to get the full experience. This provided them the clear understanding of the law and taking proper precautions when out in the real world.
iHeart Health & Wellness Expo feat. Dr. Oz:
BOLD MYNDS got the opportunity to see Dr. Oz and a host of others up close and personal speak about health and wellness. They were able to get hands-on experience learning about all the benefits of taking care of yourself mentally and physically.
