FIRST TAKE needs your support for usable equipment, scholarship funding and simple lunches as we train teens who are excited about news careers and want an early start.
This career prep program in New York City is free for teens (great news for parents) so we need help providing essentials including working cameras and mics, computer lab and studio rentals, scholarships for top students plus basic lunches once a week.
This is an extracurricular Saturday activity for driven students and is run by dedicated professionals who volunteer their time and talent for the future generation.
We are working news and media people committed to helping teens get a fast start in a fast career. We help them produce important information for the public and gain hands-on experience in a professional environment.
