Video and Television Production


Did you know that most communities have a cable access station and many offer video production classes and volunteer opportunities for kids and teens? Call your local cable company and ask for the number for the local cable access channel offices. Ask to speak to the volunteer director or the youth coordinator.
Opportunities for youth at cable access stations vary from community to community. Cable Access Incorporated of Fort Wayne, Indiana, sponsors the Three Rivers Video Contest. Not only is there a contest category specifically for teens and middle school kids, but Cable Access Incorporated runs programs that teach participants how to use the video equipment. To find out about the Cable Access opportunities in your area, contact your local cable access station.
