The Bay Area Multicultural Media Academy (BAMMA) is a two-week residential program built around developing journalism skills and careers for Bay Area high school students. The program dates are June 19 - July 2, 2018.

The Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism at San Francisco State University has sponsored BAMMA since 1990. Our graduates work in print, radio, television and online journalism.
 
BAMMA is dedicated to providing opportunities to youth from underserved communities—Asian American, African American, Latino, Native American and low-income youth—to develop skills as a journalist that will open doors for them in media careers and help the profession do a better job covering news for everyone.

Eighteen teenagers participate in BAMMA and produce Golden Gate [X]Press 2.0, a 24-page tabloid newspaper, under the direction of professional journalists and SFSU journalism majors. They photograph, report and write on real stories that are printed and distributed at the university and throughout the Bay Area.
