First Voice Media is an intensive radio apprenticeship program at KPFA-FM
The Apprenticeship program offers a unique opportunity to learn media in a multicultural environment with a social justice agenda. You will be rewarded with dope media skills. But more importantly you will be connected with a long legacy of community-dedicated visionaries who will help you keep your eye on the prize.
