After School Youth Program

BE HEARD LogoBE HEARD! the after-school program offered by True Media Foundation is for high school students in the RE-1 school district of Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley. Students earn up to 10 credits in Business and Technology as they learn professional digital media production skills. To find out more about our after school programs visit our BE HEARD! page.

BE HEARD! is a multi-media program and a teen talk show. The crew behind the scenes and in front of the camera are all teens. BE HEARD! captures the most raw, entertaining, and humorous moments of discussion amongst this generation. Watch as teens get heated and vocal as they debate about current events, politics, and social issues.

The accomplishments of BE HEARD! have been impressive and noteworthy.Over the years, the program has trained more than 75 teens in the skills and art of TV and video production, reporting, and Internet broadcasting—live and pre-taped. Our students have had the opportunities to interview state, national and international political and thought leaders, asking them questions to which young people want answers.

Graduates of our program have gone on to pursue careers in various fields of media and to further studies in higher education. Those who have pursued further studies have reported that they started far ahead of their fellow students who did not have this valuable experience and knowledge.

The BE HEARD! TV credited course teaches young adults to use the tools of electronic communication to foster understanding and compassion to become ethical and socially responsible media-makers of the future. BE HEARD! is a program under the non-profit organization, True Media Foundation.
