While internet video has exploded, language is still a significant barrier to education, economic opportunity, political participation, and other areas of cultural life. Amara connects millions of people to help break down these barriers.

Amara is home to a vibrant group of passionate individuals focused on making online content accessible. We want everyone to benefit from the free education, culture, and media available. Content that enriches people’s lives and broadens their perspectives.

Our technology, our services, and our teams are driven to accomplish this mission. We are a diverse group of people, from places and cultures across the globe, who want to see a more inclusive and collaborative world.

Amara and PCF

Amara is a project of the Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF), a nonprofit 501c3. We are driven by our mission to foster a media ecosystem that enables everyone to benefit from online video content. Content that can enrich lives, but is not currently available to those who cannot hear or understand the language of the video. We believe a participatory and inclusive world leads to a more understanding and caring society.

The Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) develops technology and services that ensure everyone has access to all that the internet has to offer. From the abundance of free education available, to gaining insights about the many different cultures around the globe, information is critical to building a more equitable and peaceful society.

At PCF, we work together with a single-minded focus. Driven by passion not profit, our team is committed to building technology and services that make a difference.

Our Commitment to Diversity

The work of the Participatory Culture Foundation is strengthened by the diversity of our network and our differences in background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and much more. We welcome applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQIA community, and persons with disabilities.
