Youth Training Programs

Shasta Community Access Center connects our region's youth and community through meaningful usage of the power of digital media.  Partnering with instructors with proven industry experience and a heart for the region, we provide real world on-the-job training, teaching invaluable skills in one of the fastest growing industries in the world, while imparting the importance of teamwork, communication, commitment to others, and dedication to enhancing the social and cultural value of one's community.

Our Educational Programs: 

YouthForce sees underserved and at-risk teens paired with organizations and relevant local issues in need of professional and compelling media campaigns.  The teams learn the ins and outs of video production, meet with clients, and develop and produce a professional product.  Their work is important and celebrated, expanding their relationship and appreciation for their community - an experience that can continue to shape the rest of their lives.

ShortCuts is an intensive 3 week summer course designed for youth ages 9-14, in which they write, develop, produce and edit a short movie.

FeMedia focusses on young women, and introduces them to the world of digital arts and video production.  Women are largely absent in leading production roles, and our program aims to create a new generation of strong and empowered young women, ready to make their mark on the exciting world of digital media.

SportsCasters Camp, designed to bridge our youth's love of sports with the exciting world of tv broadcasting.
