WHO IS ELIGIBLE
Veterans-TV (VETV) offers Veterans of the U.S. Armed and Uniformed Services, their spouses and dependents over the age of 18, who find themselves in a life situation beyond their control, an opportunity to rise above their current status. The first hurdle for them is already resolved by the fact that this program is available to them at no cost. There are also a limited number of seats for non-veterans, at a minimal fee.
VETV does not discriminate based on race, sex, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or housing status.
Our program offers the most professional, real-time, hands-on television Production and Post-‐production technical training available.
