We inspire young learners and the community around them to create, communicate, and safely navigate the digital world.
We envision a community where all – from young learners to their parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers, and local leaders – enjoy the safe, creative, and balanced presence of technology in their lives; and where young learners can access expert training and inspiration in media and technology fields, then exploring opportunities to connect with the local workforce, higher education, and the wider creative economy.
TK1 prepares youth for success:
True Kids 1 began as a youth radio program at KNCE’s airstream trailer studio in Taos, New Mexico, with local youth sharing live music and educational content. The project soon expanded to recording students from local K-12 schools, ranging from the Taos HS Mariachi Band to 2nd graders’ poems about what it means to be an American, to segments on science and geography. As enthusiasm grew, the students became more involved in the production, and started recording video as well as audio.
