Through our media programs, you can get a head start on your career, develop your interests, or learn valuable lifelong skills! We offer programs for many young New Yorkers, whether you want to learn video production, create an empowering documentary or photograph life in the city. You will also develop valuable skills as a digital citizen: you can focus on learning how to code, how to be safe online, and how to make ethical media.

Featured Programs
