YO S.O.S. traveled to Manhattan Neighborhood Network last Tuesday to film a “PSA in a Day.” The facilitators at MNN Youth Channel led a two hour workshop on what is a PSA (public service announcement) and how to make one of our own. We got a tour of the studios and saw what a wonderful resource MNN is for young people in New York City. If you are interested in media and are under 25 years old, MNN might be for you! Their website says, “The Youth Channel is… an alternative to mass media, providing equal access to all young people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or social status. The Youth Channel empowers young people to see themselves as participants of media and not just consumers by placing strong emphasis on media education, media production and youth media distribution. “
We had so much fun filming our PSAs and on our way home we got to pose for a picture in Columbus Circle.
