Twice Media Productions has made service our first priority since 2012
We have volunteered services to charitable causes, offered internships to students at the University of Houston and Prairie View A&M University, and partnered with the Houston Area Urban League and the Alief Independent School District to offer career and financial advice to high school students. Our reach is not just local. Every year, we award a $500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior in Columbia, Mo., and in September 2013, we taught social media to high school students in Durban, South Africa.
The Houston Minority Supplier Development Council is a certifying agency that helps to develop minority businesses. We have partnered happily in offering free webinars to its members.
Since 2015, we have offered free seminars to SCORE volunteers and clients. Seminar topics include social media and video marketing.
Houston Area Urban League
In December 2015, we joined with the league to host the Small Business Exchange Summit. The day-long event featured presentations on entrepreneurship, finance, leadership, and more. In a community pitch contest, participants competed Shark Tank-style for prizes.
Alief Independent School District and the Houston Area Urban League
In 2014, our company, along with the Houston Area Urban League, partnered with the Alief Independent School District to offer career and financial advice to high school students.
University of Houston
In addition to having UH students participate in our internship, we have also participated in the Career Service Department’s Speed Networking Event, helping students hone their interviewing skills.
Prairie View A&M University
In 2014, we partnered with PVAMU’s Languages and Communication Department to help coordinate and sponsor the PV Dream Big event, a panel discussion featuring top leaders in the communications industry. Click here to see photos from the event!
Ultimate Prom Experience
In May 2012, we partnered with other women-owned businesses to send three 5th Ward area girls to prom by providing services free of charge.

With The Renaissance Group International (TRG), a nonprofit organization committed to teaching and empowering youths worldwide.
At its annual entrepreneurship conference, we were privileged to facilitate a workshop on social media for high school students in the informal settlements of Bhambayi and Inanda Newtown C outside Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. Health, finances, and education were among topics discussed at the conference.
Founded in 2006, TRG works with youths, enabling them to become healthy, educated, and financially independent global leaders. To learn more about TRG or to donate, visit http://trg-international.org/.

“Managing social media for Twice Media Productions, LLC, has increased my knowledge of media production and small business management. From daily posts on photo and video tips to the latest entrepreneurial news, every day became a learning experience.
I truly appreciate the opportunity to have been a part of the growth of Twice Media Productions, LLC. I look forward to applying the knowledge gained from this internship toward my future career in media production.”
Cara Ball – Michigan State University Graduate
“It was a blast being a part of Twice Media Productions. This was the first internship I have ever partaken in, so I was very grateful for the opportunity.
My experience with Twice Media Productions was an experience that I find very unique. My only experience in filming and lighting was within University of Houston boundaries. Lighting was a concept that was hard to grasp even when taught by my colleagues in the Student Video Network. When Tiffany gave me a tutorial on lighting (regardless whether it was for photography or video), it provided me with knowledge from someone who has done this many times before in real scenarios for clients and customers. It gave me another direction to see how things work in media production.”
Kevin Kuo – University of Houston Student
