Why We Ask for Your Support. MCAT, Missoula's Community Media Resource, encourages every child to explore their creativity through hands-on media creation experiences. MCAT believes that Media Education is a vital part of empowering young people. Our kids seek out moving images as the fastest way to learn new things and exercise their imaginations. Kids who are media literate are more prepared to navigate a world dominated by social media and media influences. Your support will go towards youth media workshops and camps for school breaks and during the summer months. Thank you.
