A 2-week training program is open to high school students, especially those living with a disability, who dream of telling important stories across media platforms. The program will bring together passionate young people to learn and use our on-campus production studio to develop, shoot and edit content using our state-of-the-art equipment.
The School of Communications at Quinnipiac University created Ability Media to address the lack of representation of people with different abilities in media content creation. For that reason, we welcome everyone who dreams of YouTube stardom, becoming a social media influencer or telling important stories — your stories — to the world.
Participants will spend 2 weeks immersed in our own on-campus production studio creating content, using our field camera equipment and editing labs to shoot and edit their own video content. Present live from our studios and our control room in the Ed McMahon Communications Center. Content created during the camp may be used on our various Quinnipiac media channels, as well as for your own channels and personal portfolios.
