Mandatory Orientation at KPFA: 7 to 9pm, Thursday, March 28th, 2013
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 dayshift 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.
