Access Monterey Peninsula (AMP)


AMP Media enables freedom of expression and communication within our local community. AMP Media is the premier resource for promoting and engaging local government, the public, and community organizations to effectively communicate.

The Big Idea

With their newest project—Bigger is Better, Round 2—AMP Media aims to offer hands-on media experience and education to Monterey County students in grades 11-14. In their new location, AMP—the region’s only nonprofit community broadcasting organization—has more room to hold bigger classes and teach production skills related to the arts and the broadcast industry. Round 2 will engage a community of student storytellers through collaborative and fun lessons that pertain to the real world. Students can also receive college credit toward media arts degrees at participating colleges. AMP hopes to also fund Round 3, which would involve opening their doors not only to students, but to other members of the community looking to further their knowledge of the media arts.

AMP Media helped me win a media arts award last year. I was tasked to create a three-minute promotional video for a documentary I’m helping with and I came to AMP Media for guidance. Everyone there is so easy to work with and very knowledgeable about video production. I learned how to bring my story to life and, ultimately, won an award for my video from one of the trade organizations in my field. I’m really looking forward to working with the talented folks at AMP Media again soon. I have a lot more I want to learn.
