YC Programming: Coming Up on the YC white background, blue shades. and shapes with YC logo

Ever felt like you were in a movie? Maybe you’ve felt like you were secretly being filmed as the main character, and everyone around you are just actors. When you’re feeling down you probably sing a sad song in your head. Or if you’re feeling yourself, you bump some bangers on your phone. But, what if you could make this "movie" into real one? MNN’s Youth Media Center offers media education and internships to people, just like you! Learn how to make your short stories come to life. Join the Youth Channel for a week of special programming about film and media production.

The Youth Channel airs programming every weeknight from 6-7pm on MNN 4 (FiOS 36, RCN 85, Spectrum 67 & 1998) and MNN HD (Spectrum 1993). To learn about MNN’s Youth Media Center and the work they produce, click here.
