Class Start Spring 2015

Since 1985 thirty-eight generations of people have worked hard to make this program what it is today.  If you have been looking to tell your stories, and create a space for your community to tell theirs, then First Voice Media may be for you. If you come from an under-represented community, are adaptable, understanding, flexible, committed, have a positive outlook, and are willing to work in a diverse group setting, we encourage you to apply.

The program is intensive and demanding, with two night classes and one day-shift per week for 15 to 18 months.  The projected time commitment averages 20 hours a week. All those selected must agree to serve their respective communities, KPFA, and Pacifica, in exchange for skills development and access to resources. If you are accepted, there is a $50 supply fee due on the first night of class. If money is a factor, don’t let it stop you from applying, we can try to work something out. Your voice is valuable.

    Hello, I’m a devoted listener of KPFA, and am looking to gain more information about your apprenticeship program. Is there a stipend available?

      Allison, First Voice Media provides members of the community with concrete radio skills like producing, engineering and editing as well as allows them to share stories of their choosing with KPFA audience on a weekly basis. First Voice Media is in charge of the show Full Circle as well as other administrative aspects at KPFA. This program offers access to the station and the airwaves. There is no stipend, but there is opportunity to network with people in the progressive radio community and to reach out tell the stories not featured in the media. Our application deadline for this group is on June 10th and applications can either be downloaded from this website or you can pick one up at KPFA in Berkeley. We look forward to hearing more from you!

    Applications can be emailed to firstvoice@kpfa.org or mailed to 1929 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Berkeley CA 94704 (attention: apprenticeship program). Applicants should apply and the directors of the program will work out any special circumstances that come up. First Voice Media works on an overlapping mentoring system meaning that there are always new groups being taught by old groups. If you don’t fit into this current group, there is always the next one :)
