ABOUT PEABODY YOUTH TV

Since its inception in 2011, Peabody Youth TV (PYTV) has taught over 200 students how to create unique and creative media.

PYTV (ages 9-14) is designed to empower and encourage young media makers to make their creative concepts a reality, while also encouraging critical thinking. The program will introduce students to writing, directing, filming, editing, photography, and more!

My son and many of his friends have been enjoying the after school PYTV… My son truly enjoys Wednesday afternoons learning the ins and out of airing a show, editing their programs and learning what makes a Community television station work! The staff are wonderful and it has shown my son a career opportunity that he would have never learned about if it was not for the Peabody Access TV station and their dedication to the youth!
