Growing up we’ve all heard the phrase, “if life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Depending on the stage you are in, positive or negative, we always find a way to exercise this phrase. We take our elders’ experiences with war, segregation, gender discrimination, etc., and we try to improve our current environment so we have something better to offer the future generation. Join the Youth Channel this week with special programming about the Me Too movement, the LGBTQIA+ community, environmental justice, and starting a career.
The Youth Channel airs programming every weeknight from 6-7pm on MNN4 (FiOS 36, RCN 85, Spectrum 67 & 1998) and MNNHD (Spectrum 1993). To learn about MNN’s Youth Media Center and the work they produce, click here.
