Who are we?
BE HEARD! is live, unscripted, and unedited. It is actual reality TV and therefore features a range of personalities, views, and ideas that are directly from our teen panelists. BE HEARD! captures the most raw, entertaining, and humorous moments of discussion amongst this generation. Watch as teens get heated and vocal as they debate about current events, politics, and social issues.
A bridge for generational gaps...
An audience microphone is also available during the show, giving the live audience the the ability to contribute to the discussion at any moment. This bridges the generations, as the older and younger are provided a venue to really listen and communicate with one another. Many times Adult viewers walk away with a new perception of this generation and often say: I never knew teens felt that way…
How do we accomplish this?
BE HEARD! is a multi-media program AND a teen talk show. The crew behind the scenes and in front of the camera are all teens. Through the production of the weekly teen talk show students learn all aspects of new media. The program introduces real-life application to video production and new media distribution.
The BE HEARD! program is a credited high school class. Students can earn up-to ten credits a semester for business/technology.
The accomplishments of BE HEARD! have been impressive and noteworthy.
Over the years, the program has trained more than 75 teens in the skills and art of TV production, reporting, and Internet broadcasting—live and pre-taped. Our students have had the opportunities to interview state, national and international political and thought leaders, asking them questions to which young people want answers.
Graduates of our program have gone on to pursue careers in various fields of media and to further studies in higher education. Those who have pursued further studies have reported that they started far ahead of their fellow students who did not have this valuable experience and knowledge.
