Youth Media for the Digital Age

True Kids 1 (TK1) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit youth-media education nonprofit based in Taos, NM. Our mission is to inspire K-12 students to create, communicate, and collaborate in the digital age. Through our hands-on media-production to media-literacy model, we provide technical gear and expertise to students and classrooms across Northern NM, helping students tell their stories, and develop essential critical thinking and media skills.

TAOS, NM — Today, TK1 officially launched the Professional Pathways Archive, which will serve as a video repository of the amazing careers in Northern NM. Designed for a teenage audience, these videos feature local graduates now working in the skilled trades, in fighting wildland fires — and soon in many other domains as well.

The TK1 Youth Council

PRESS RELEASE FOR TUESDAY AUGUST 9, 2022

TAOS, NM — The TK1 Democracy Project has recently spun in a new direction with the birth of the Youth Council. This small group of high school students will work to amplify the power of youth in decision-making through deliberation, informed action, and digital media. From providing feedback to the town, county, and other agencies to leading youth-oriented activities and advocacy, the Youth Council is a major addition to the local landscape. It will also convene a huge Future Dialogue in November 2022 entitled, The Future of Water in Taos County: Big Challenges and Bigger Ideas.
