SPNN Youth

Youth Programs

SPNN Youth provides young people with the opportunity to create community media with a lasting impact. Through our fun and engaging programs, youth develop skills in media production, critical thinking, and community awareness. We are a place for creative exploration and diverse voices, for artistic vision and award-winning quality. As an alternative to mainstream media, we work to increase youth media visibility on our channels, on the web, and in the community. We believe in the power of youth media to stimulate dialogue and create social change!
