Support lifelong learning
WHYY Education may be best known for the 11-1/2 hours of children's programming it broadcasts weekdays on TV as well as weekend hours dedicated to children. But that is just the first step on the path to lifelong learning for those who watch. Through on-air programs, off-air outreach programs, live events, professional development opportunities, WHYY Education contributes to the healthy development and education of children, and acts as an educational partner to parents, childcare providers, and educators in the Delaware Valley.

It's time for children to get back to school and for parents to get back to their school oriented schedules. Piano lessons, soccer practices and dance classes are only a few of the activities children can jump into during the school year.
- WHYY I Like This Book This initiative from WHYY and Verizon encourages students in kindergarten through twelfth grade to share their favorite book through an online questionnaire. If your application is selected, you could potentially appear on WHYY's television stations and web site sharing your favorite book with other students and viewers.
