Manhattan Neighborhood Network's Youth Media Center produces critical media that presents in-depth analysis of the issues faced by young people in New York City and provides a pipeline for action, advancing Social Justice in NYC.

Created by producers who are both powerful storytellers and active community leaders, Youth Channel programming constructs citywide narratives to offer an alternative to the stories found in mainstream media, and to galvanize viewers to participate in local efforts toward change. The YC production process is guided by the need for media that is timely, impactful, community-based and critical.

Our target audience is youth between the ages of 14-21.

Watch YC programming Monday through Friday at 6:00 pm on MNN4 (TWC 67, RCN 85, FiOS 36 and streaming live).
