And students at Foshay Learning Center get school credit for the class.

Current Programs

We have been serving the community of South Los Angeles with service learning projects that expand our student's awareness and engagement since 2003. But, we also training the community to speak for itself.



Youth Training Programs

The Media Aid Center enjoys a unique relationship with Southland high schools providing on campus and off-campus after school programs in media arts and journalism. Our programs are designed to support technical and academic growth within the student body and faculty, enhancing instruction by offering off-campus experiences and interaction with professionals in a wide array of industries.

Our main facility on Western Avenue provides a wide range of media courses in an intimate environment. Classes include videography, photography, online journalism, and a young producers program.

Students who complete 40 hours of training and 40 hours of community service receive a certificate in media production, access to an ever-growing inventory of equipment for check out, and career support.

It's an exciting way to learn media arts, make contacts, and earn community service hours necessary for graduating high school.

Our adult short programs will be intense hands-on experiences in videography, photography, journalism, and web development. Class sizes will be held to no more than 12 and modules will be scheduled for four hours, with most classes costing only $50.

Registration and class schedules will be available in early March. So brush up your skills before the summer video season arrives.
