Video Training Program

Video Training Program

As a vendor service provider for Inland Regional Center, JDSCA’s Regional Day Video Production Program provides cross-collaboration and workforce training for adults with autism and disabilities. Even during Covid, our career pathway program continues to provide training in a working studio to teach collaboration, soft skills, technical skills, logistics, and more through visual, performing and digital arts.

Our Program’s purpose is to produce and distribute the Award Winning, Spirit of Innovation, a monthly, feature-style newscast for Riverside County.  Participants also have their own micro show that they release weekly, the “SOI Update”. Both programs were acclaimed Telly Award winners in 2020. The programs are available throughout Riverside County on Riv-Co TV as well as on local community city channels. 2019 saw the inclusion of a new broadcast in which our talented participants gather stories, write and announce a radio news segment heard locally in Southwest Riverside County on 102.5 The Vine, and globally through their streaming platform at

We provide hands-on training through a state-of-the-art television studio and field equipment. Program participants are trained and educated by our Studio Director and staff, industry professional instructors, and mentored by hired-industry apprentices. Participants have the opportunity to learn: producing, directing, writing, video production, audio, editing, lighting, streaming technical skills, costumes, sets, acting, makeup, scheduling, logistics and a work-base culture.

We provide participants who successfully complete the program with work-search assistance, job interview prep, and letters of recommendation to help them find paid work, internships, apprenticeships, and higher education in the arts, entertainment and/or other cross-trained related industries.
