Sign Up for SPOT 127 Program

KJZZ's award-winning youth media center, SPOT 127, is now accepting applications for its free after-school program.

This program provides instruction and mentoring in digital photography, audio production, video production and journalism to Valley high school students. Participants create original content while learning from professional journalists and industry experts.

Students attend two days per week from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. for the entire semester at SPOT 127’s state-of-the-art facility in West Phoenix. All equipment, including computers, software, cameras and audio recorders, is provided.

Last year, two students won a National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Student Production Award for one of their video projects. Neither teenager had any video experience before joining SPOT 127.

Classes begin Sept. 8 and Sept. 9. Space is limited to 60 students, and spots are filling up fast! To apply or get more information, please visit http://spot127.org/node/100.

KJZZ and Spot 127 are a community service of Rio Salado College.
