Montgomery Community Media is accepting applications for our new media mentorship program.
The myMCMedia Mentorship Program will train 10 older adults (ages 55+), veterans and returning citizens in media production, providing them with mentorship opportunities they can use to build skills and launch sustainable careers within the COVID-19 recovery. Participants will receive free access to our multimedia training course and meet with industry leaders for mentorship and guidance to leverage their new media skills into long-term careers. By the end of successful completion of the program, participants earn a core production certificate supporting them to produce content for MyMCM’s cable access channels, mobile-friendly website and YouTube channel.
The virtual program begins in October. Eligibility:
- 55+ years old OR a U.S. Veteran OR a Returning Citizen who was previously incarcerated
- If currently employed, not employed within the media industry
- Montgomery County, MD resident
Early applications are encouraged. For questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
