The objective of this project is to educate and empower local community members by providing them with the proper tools and training for a brighter future. The TDV Wireless Communications training series focuses on training students to build and set up network antennas, configure a central out door router, send and receive radio signal and so much more.

Students will learn how to produce and edit video and audio using current technology and techniques. The program will encompass numerous aspects of media and produce content media for both Internet and other methods of viewing.
All local individuals who fit the criteria requirements are invited to apply. Once all applications and Letter of Intents have been submitted please allow two weeks for Tribal Digital Village to review. TDV will notify the students who have been selected via phone or mail.
