Since 1985, forty-four 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 [when the FV Program has access to the radio station] for 12 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.  If money is a factor, don’t let it stop you from applying, we can try to work something out. Your voice is valuable.

Some modifications have been made due to COVID 19
