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.

First Voice Media is building a lasting institution for women, people of color and under-resourced communities to learn media skills and gain access to radio as a means of empowerment using mass communications and art.
Classes meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00pm – 9:30pm at KPFA. Apprentices are also asked to spend one business day a week working to gain administrative and production experience.
Applications are due on April 11th at 5:00pm.

Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
