  • The Youth Media Project provides intensive hands-on training in video production, sound design, and other media skills. This program is open to anyone from the ages of 16 to 30 who is interested in learning how to create videos that tell stories and inspire community discourse. We recruit nine participants per 13 week session.
  • Participants create two films: one independent film that speaks to what they would like to see done better in our community, and one film in collaboration with a small business or community organization that celebrates the sustainable work that is being done in the Valley.

To be eligible for the program, participants must have an interest in art and video, be between the ages of 16 and 30, not be working or attending school full time, and not be on Employment Insurance.

Participants will be paid a full-time minimum wage for 30 hours a week if accepted
