About SPNN Youth
SPNN Youth Programs provides Saint Paul youth with the opportunity to create community media with a lasting impact. Through our fun and engaged programs, youth develop skills in media production, critical thinking, and community awareness. We are a place for exploration and diverse voices, for artistic vision and award-winning quality. As an alternative to mainstream media, we work to increase youth media visibility on our channels and on the web. We believe in the power of youth media to stimulate dialogue and create social change.
Youth are active members of SPNN Youth Programs as participants, mentors, and leaders, and work with our staff to create youth-driven programs. We welcome and strive to be accessible to youth most affected by the digital divide including: low income youth, youth of color, new immigrant youth, differently-abled youth, GLBTQI youth, and youth from other marginalized communities.
