The MCM Youth Media Academy is an out-of-school time program that offers media instruction and leadership training to youth aged 13-17 years-old. Taught by Montgomery Community Media professionals, using an Advancing Youth Development (AYD) framework, MCM Youth Media Academy is designed to engage youth in quality media instruction tailored to their age group. On Tuesdays, starting in February 2021, MCM Youth Media Academy participants engage in media training that revolves around editing, shooting, producing, and development. On Thursdays, youth work on producing the youth-hosted show ArtsEnPower which airs on cable-access television channel 21 on Mondays at 4:30 pm.

MCM Youth Media Academy meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 pm to 5 pmvia Zoom. The program fee is $200 for 8-weeks (Feb. 9, 2021 to April 1, 2021). (MCM members receive a $25 discount). Scholarships are available for those with financial needs. Homeschooled and Montgomery County public school students who participate in our media academy will be invited to earn their SSL hours working on ArtsEnPower.
