Youth Courses in Video, Audio & Journalism
The longest running of WHYY's media courses, WHYY's Youth Programs offer hands-on production training for teens. After-school programs teach 10th-12th graders to produce short documentaries, create original radio stories and operate the equipment in the Lincoln Financial Digital Education Studio. Students can further explore their interest through a series of summer camps with focuses on multimedia journalism and filmmaking. Youth Programs encourage teens to explore their own worlds through media, as they create projects on topics they select themselves. Questions? Please contact Craig Santoro at 215-351-3318
