Our girls have something to say, so listen up, Long Island!

Our Mission

By helping young women create their own media, we hope to equip our girls with a strategy for independence which they can use to promote positive representations of themselves in the media they create.

  • LIGT girls learn about themselves, media, and how they can fit into or affect media

  • Our workshops provide holistic training and exposure to personal development and growth

  • LIGT girls develop longstanding relationships with other girls in the program

  • Each LIGT girl develops her own unique voice 

To help young girls become future leaders in media.  


1.To provide training in all aspects of television film production and most notably in nontraditional technical roles for women in camera, sound, and graphic work.


2. To educate the girls about the social issues which affect them as both as women and residents of Long Island.


3. To boost self-esteem both by creating a media presence that celebrates the average girl.


4. To develop leadership skills by giving the girls the primary roles and responsibility for their creative effort.


Long Island Girl Talk (LIGT) is looking for teen girls ages 13 to 18 from the Uniondale, Hempstead, Roosevelt, and Freeport School Districts to train in creating their own media.
