You can help youth to discover and share their voices through multimedia youth programs and camps!

About the Project

Texting, Chatting, Tweeting, Pinning, Blogging...

Teenagers love to creatively express themselves!

You can give a teenager the opportunity to express their own voice as a backpack journalist or as a producer of the next viral music video.

Imagine our future teen journalists covering the latest school football game or sending you a video blog that features a review of the latest movies showing in Gaithersburg.

Picture an aspiring producer or future director making the next viral music video in front of the Fillmore in downtown Silver Spring.

Our students are acquiring the 21st century digital skills that will be critical to future educational and employment opportunities. Our immersive, educational multimedia programs have opened doors for our past participants who have received college scholarships as well as internships and employment at Univision, C-SPAN, QVC, CBS Television and Montgomery Community Media.

We need your help to make sure these amazing opportunities continue to be available to low-income youth in our community. Our many community partners made it possible for MCM to provide tuition-free enrollment in our 2016 camps for 10 low-income youth! And the scholarship requests continue to come in every day. For example, we received a request from a counselor at a local high school, who said:

Oscar is a 10th grader here ... He created and edited a few segments of our morning announcement show ... He is very interested in media production and very handy with making videos. I would hate to see him miss this opportunity over money. Thank you for all of your help.   

It means a lot for us to be able to say yes to Oscar, and the other students who are looking forward to this special opportunity! And we would be so grateful for your support as partners in making such scholarships possible.

Give a teenager the chance to have creative fun while learning multimedia production, backpack journalism, social media and so much more.

Make a difference to a kid, today.
