The Digital Arts and Culinary Academy (DACA) is a state of the art facility designed to give teens an opportunity to learn and grow, while having a good time with instructors and fellow members.
The Digital Arts and Culinary Academy's mission is to help teens, aged 13 thru 16, grow and build self confidence through the learning of at least one of four components in our program: Digital Audio Production, Digital Video Production, Culinary Arts, or Urban Agriculture. Our goal is to help our youth excel and create a better life and community for themselves and others.
We offer two programs and a host of what we call Intensive Classes.
Culinary Arts - Urban Agriculture Programs
Explore Culinary Arts in a modern state of the art kitchen. Learn not only how to prepare delicious, healthy meals, but also how to organically cultivate and harvest food in the Urban Agriculture Department.
Digital Video - Digital Music Programs
Discover the world of video production. Be a part of the social media movement. Learn to make and share your own videos. You will also learn how to create and record music, raps, beats, or spoken word of all kinds.
Programs run Monday through Friday, 3 hours per day, and include materials for all programs and a meal provided by the Culinary Program.
Please go to the "Programs" page for detailed information about our programs and intensive classes.
