CreaTV  serves youth and adults in San Jose and Silicon Valley, with special focus on low-income communities of color, and underrepresented communities, including at-risk youth and LGBTQ+ adults. CreaTV serves people in low-income communities that feel that they do not have a voice in the issues that affect their neighborhoods and lives. These communities face considerable challenges in opportunities for artistic expression (and exposure to artistic career opportunities) through media. They face significant obstacles in directly accessing media content or tools and technology they can use to tell their stories, express their artistic point-of-view, and build their confidence in engaging in civic discourse through media.

Each participant will have access to CreaTV's professional community media team and resources. This will include the production equipment, technical training, and mentoring needed to develop artistic and media making skills so they might bring the spirit of innovation and empowerment home to their communities.

Youth in Technology Incubator is a program of AACI, funded by the Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Department - Substance Use Prevention Services.
