Produce a PSA for Your Organization
Do you want to change the way people think about an issue? Each year, CCTV's PSA Day gives local non-profit organizations a chance to create informative PSAs on issues about which they are hoping to raise awareness. PSAs are shown on CCTV's three cable channels (with the potential of reaching more than 32,000 households), can be submitted to other television stations, uploaded to your organization's website and social media accounts, or used for other public relations projects.

Design Specialized Technology Training for your Staff and Volunteers
CCTV can design and offer technology classes to meet the specific needs of your nonprofit. This is a great retreat option for nonprofits hoping to strengthen a team of staff through engaging with new technology, or for creating a successful learning experience for constituents. Contact Clodagh Drummey at clodagh@cctvcambridge.org or 617.401.4005 for details.

CCTV offers 8000 square feet of prime real estate space in Central Square and we're only 150 yards from the MBTA Red Line subway stop. Our venue and location can't be beat. The main studio’s large screen allows for film screenings and presentations at some of the best rates in the city. Already media savvy and want to use our equipment for your own production?
