We provide tours for youth that want to learn more about video production or for those looking to earn their communication badges for scouts. The tour includes an overview of the station and an opportunity for the students to get in front of the camera and create a PSA. Groups of no more that 20 at a time will get the chance to come in take a tour of the station and then will get a chance to get in front of the camera to create a public service announcement. The group will be given one DVD (more available upon request for a cost).The tour lasts about 45 min.

*The cost for the tour is $10.00 per scout or sibling at a minimum of $100.00.  If you don’t have 10 scouts or siblings, the total cost would be $100.00 *Adults are free

*We offer tours weekdays between the hours of 10am – 5pm and we don’t schedule tours on Saturday

Parent Testimonial:

"The TV station tour for the cub scouts was fun, insightful, captivating and creative. We learned about editing, production and every child had a chance to be in front of the camera and do an announcement. The kids had a lot of fun and the staff did a fantastic job. I would recommend this to everyone who is curious to have a behind the scene look at how a TV program is made."

Dear Parents,                                                                                                             

 

KMVT 15 is thrilled to be partnering with Graham Middle School’s GMS TV again this year to offer an immersive afterschool opportunity. This is the third year of MV Youth Voices, the first program of its kind anywhere in the Bay Area. 

 

MV Youth Voices is an amazing program that provides hands-on experience in all aspects of video production. Students also learn leadership and teambuilding skills with their classmates. 

Last year students produced 26 programs including, sports, mini documentaries, public service announcements and graduation  Student’s works are seen on TV via Comcast Channel 15 in Mountain View, Los Altos and Cupertino, throughout the Bay Area on Channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse ‘Mountain View”, and worldwide on Roku and our Youtube Channel   (YouTube Channel

 

For more than 30 years, KMVT 15 has been a deeply-cherished institution, providing training in video production, media literacy, and a voice for hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay area residents as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide media literacy education, hands-on training, and civic engagement. We serve as a resource to narrow the digital divide through the use of technology, and provide the community with the tools to create media and utilize technology in a socially responsible manner. (www.kmvt15.org

 

The Youth Voices program runs all year long on Tues. and Thurs. directly afterschool, til 4PM. There will be some days that the program will go to 5PM.

 

In order to be able to provide hands on training there is a fee of $399 per child for the year.  The cost equates to $45 a month and less than $6 dollars a session.  What does your money get you?
