The Youth Channel is a division of Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) targeting youth under 25. It is an alternative to mass media, providing equal access to all young people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or social status.
We are the first Channel created by youth for youth. Manhattan Neighborhood Network's Youth Channel was established in March 2000 to provide disadvantaged, low-income and minority youth access to a quality media forum through which to express creativity, foster dialogue, and encourage social and civic participation.
The Youth Channel strives to build confidence, establish role models, inform, educate, and entertain. It empowers youth to create change within their communities and the world. The Youth Channel is run by adults and youth who want to make a difference.
