WHYY’s talented Andre Reed and Media Arts Education program were featured on CBS Sunday Morning today as part of PBS’s 50th Anniversary. Take a few minutes to see this compelling piece about the great value of public media...and especially WHYY’s Media Arts Education work which has served more than 15,000 Philadelphia students in the past decade including Dre. We are so thankful for the 40+ foundations and corporations who make this program possible. It is provided 100% free of charge to Philadelphia students K-12. There are thousands more stories out there that may not make the national news but are just as meaningful as Dre’s.

Hello teachers and administrators! So much has happened in the past 2 weeks. In the comments, share with us how you and your students have been feeling.
Check out WHYY's new Game Changers initiative which will work closely with our Media Labs program.
How can WE help make a change for the greater good? WHYY is proud to join with Erika and Rodney McLeod to introduce Game Changers, a brand-new initiative to empower the Greater Philly community and youth through education.
Game Changers will provide hands-on media training, Black History modules for students and teachers, and paid internships for youth of color with the goal of showcasing diverse voices and experiences that students have with social injustice, racism, and gun-violence — while equally highlighting active, innovative solutions they believe will help drive real and lasting change.

WHYY's Education is very excited to announce two awards from the Independence Public Media Foundation's Community Voices Fund.
We will be working with 8 other organizations on the Youth Set the Stage Collaborative.
Youth Set The Stage (YSTS) is a youth-media collaborative made up of nine Philadelphia-based youth organizations with the mission to share and uplift the impactful work of the youth in their programs.
The Community Voices grant will support a series of online and youth-driven programming throughout the 2020-2021 school year. Youth Set The Stage will build a strong network of organizations working in youth media throughout Philadelphia, regularly engage youth media content creators and provide platforms to showcase and present the voices and current perspectives of these Philadelphia youth, creating an audiovisual capsule of the current moment. In the process of the year-long cross-collaborations, YSTS will build an accessible toolkit for instructors working with students remotely.
The Community Voices grant will also support a pilot project with PlanPhilly and WHYY Media Labs that will create a model for area newsrooms to integrate anti-racist journalism practices into local public school journalism curriculum and local newsrooms and amplify youth voice while strengthening and diversifying a talent pipeline that for too long been dominated by white students from elite institutions.
We are so excited for this school year!
