» PATV Youth Project



“Teen TV” is a weekly club which is part of PATV’s Youth Project. The goal of the Youth Project is to provide media arts training for students interested in the field of Television and to develop leadership, group work and critical thinking skills. Our students have training and access to the PATV studio and remote equipment as well as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere editing.


In 2015, our students produced and crewed on over 20 studio productions for cablecast on PATV, Ch. 20 Cablevision and Ch. 37 FIOS TV.
Students who have participated in Teen TV attended the following schools, Great Neck North, Great Neck South, Herricks HS, Chaminade HS, Roslyn High School, Baldwin HS and Manhasset HS.


Eligible students: 8th grade through senior year.


Students who participate in the Teen TV can earn High School Community Service credit for graduation and are eligible for PATV’s High School Community Service Award for graduating seniors.  Students will learn tv studio and field production skills and post-production editing on state-of-the-art equipment.


Teen TV meets Thursdays at 4pm-6pm and follows the school calendar (No school = no Teen TV). Refreshments always provided. For more information or to join please contact Erica Bradley at ebradley@patv.org or (516) 629-3710 x12.
