Featured Media

To support Youth-On-Air, a multimedia network that shares youth-produced content and engages it viewers in civil discourse

To engage young people in local issues, 20 Salt Lake City teens will have the opportunity to develop a Youth-On-Air broadcasting program. Working with Spy Hop Productions, the students will produce original stories about the issues affecting their lives. These stories will then be shared on TV, on radio and online through Web streaming. Their stories will inform and engage citizens of all ages in conversations around social, political and economic issues of significance, while empowering teens to express themselves and take action for change.
