The Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) invites middle and high school students to apply for the third annual Youth Voices program. Youth Voices is a 14-week documentary filmmaking intensive for Central Valley Junior High and High School students, age 18 and under.

The Youth Voices program teaches youth how to harness the power of media to tell stories of personal and societal significance through documentary filmmaking.

Over the course of 14 weeks, CMAC will provide video production equipment, mentorship, and instruction as members of the Youth Voices cohort develop and produce their own documentary films.

12 applicants will be chosen to participate and will receive a $1,000 stipend and a one year membership to CMAC. The cohort will meet in person and virtually as needed.

They will host an application Q&A session on Thursday, April 21, at 5pm via Zoom to answer any questions about the program, the application process, and about CMAC in general. Click here to register for the Q&A session.

Applications are due by Monday, May 9 at 11:59 p.m.
