Youth Media Center

Established in March 2000, Manhattan Neighborhood Network's Youth Media Center (YMC) develops 21st Century communicators and participants in social justice.
 
The Youth Media Center offers Manhattan residents ages 14 to 25 free video production training, along with the opportunity to produce critical media on important youth issues for MNN's award-winning Youth Channel, which airs weeknights from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm on MNN4: TWC 67, RCN 85, FiOS 36, and streaming live on MNN.org.
 

In early 2012, the Youth Media Center moved to the MNN El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center.
