Philadelphia Youth Media Collaborative


This site is a resource to learn about Youth Media Programs and opportunities in Philadelphia. We hope the site will be useful to young people who are interested in gaining media production skills as well as teachers, parents and program providers who want to learn more about youth media in Philadelphia.
You can explore the Events and Opportunities sections and see a sample of Youth produced media work. If you are interested in contributing or learning more, Contact us! We currently have general meetings each month. We are always looking to expand our network, so we hope to hear from you!
