WHAT we do

Working in partnership with local hospitals, BayKids teaches digital filmmaking skills to hospitalized children. Through our programs, children discover their own unique voice and experience the healing power of self-expression.

WHO we are

BayKids' roots took hold in 1994 when founder Dave Spencer started a community outreach program for the San Francisco Giants. Inspired by the program's success in helping children, Dave founded BayKids in 1997 with the goal of offering new and innovative ways to empower children through self-expression. Today, BayKids has evolved to focus its multimedia expertise on serving children in the Bay Area facing medical challenges. Working in partnership with Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland and UCSF Children's Hospital, our digital filmmaking programs provide kids with the opportunity to explore their creativity while learning filmmaking, teamwork and leadership skills.

WHY we do it

We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of hospitalized children by teaching them a wide range of moviemaking skills and helping them discover the power of self-expression.
