MTV is Looking for Homeschooled Teens

We don’t get MTV or watch this show but I thought I would pass on the message….

“MTV Real Life” is looking for homeschoolers between the ages of 13 and 18.

They say:

“Are you a homeschooler with a story to tell? If so, MTV would like to hear from you.

Over a million American young people are home learners. But for those who aren’t, homeschooled kids can seem mysterious, and often what’s unknown about homeschoolers gets filled in with myths and stereotypes. On this episode of “True Life” we’ll show what it’s really like to be homeschooled and we’ll help break some of those misconceptions.

Are you an athlete who has to do twice the work to get recognized? Or maybe it’s a challenge to get into the college of your dreams because your class rank is “1 out of 1”? Are you about to start or stop homeschooling? Whatever your situation or story is, if you or someone you know might be interested, we’d like to hear from you. Please include your name, age, location and phone number and email us at:

Our goal — as with all episodes of “True Life” — is to help MTV’s young audience understand why many young people, and their parents, choose to homeschool. We will treat the people who participate in this documentary — and whatever educational, philosophical or religious beliefs they possess — with respect.

“True Life” is a documentary series that’s been on MTV for more than 10 years. It chronicles the stories of young people in all kinds of situations, from global and political issues like conflict and natural disasters to personal achievements and family matters.

“True Life” is not a reality show. Our producers follow strict ethical guidelines and carefully avoid influencing our subjects’ stories. It is also not a news show – there is no host or reporter.

  1. Gosh, I worry so much about reality television and homeschoolers… they sound sincere, but the editing process can make things look very different from what they are!
