Eastern Coachella Valley

The Eastern Coachella Valley (ECV) is a rural, unincorporated area in Southern California with a thriving community, which includes indigenous folks, Purépecha community, immigrant communities, and the queer community. Our programs support young people to identify the root causes of systemic issues in their communities and to uplift their own stories to bring about positive change.

Coachella Unincorporated was the first youth media program based in the ECV, followed by ¡Que Madre! Media in 2018. More recently, we launched our COVID-19 Response work, which has put youth voice at the forefront of addressing the impacts of COVID-19 on our communities. Our ECV office is also a member of the ECV Pride Planning Committee. 

The ECV also provides a career pipeline for our youth participants by offering paid youth internships to help lead our programming. Our current interns include Consuelo Marquez, Stephanie Serrato, and Jonathan Lopez.
