MCAT Media Assistance

MCAT offers up to 12 free hours of our staff time to help you record, archive, and distribute a non-commercial program that will run on our cable channels connected to over 10,000 households in the Missoula area. This program could be an event your organization is hosting, a performance or concert, or an informational video about your group and its services. MCAT will also assist non-profit organizations that would like to make training videos. You can request the service by clicking on the Apply For a Grant button and then creating a Submittable Account to fill out the required form. MCAT has been offering this service for over 20 years and many organizations have used the created media content for social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

Attend a workshop

MCAT offers our media training classes for free. You can choose to learn about cameras, special effects, studio recording or podcasting. When you learn about how media is created you also learn a lot about decoding and analyzing the messages directed at you everyday.

Donate to our scholarship fund

MCAT offers week-long workshops for kids in the summer. We work with the after-school program Flagship to keep kids learning and thriving in those key hours after-school and before parents have finished work. Your donation can pay for an after-school activity or a week-long adventure in media creation for a Missoula student.
