PSTV broadcasts youth-driven programming created by and for students that benefit them and their communities, 24 hours a day.
In our industry-standard state-of-the-art production studio we provide multimedia tools for students to gain hands-on experience in a professional environment.
PSTV’s approach to media and digital literacy provides students, educators, and parents the opportunity to work together, using critical thinking skills while creating media that enables constructive social awareness and responsibility.
PSTV leads the charge with democratizing access to industry-standard multidimensional media arts training platforms that support all forms of learning from individualized, school-based, community-based, and traditional.
We recognize the importance of how the arts universally builds community and is taking the opportunity to establish ideas, platforms, and tools that will continue to enhance student arts engagement, communities, and experiences that provide them agency so they are prepared for a world of technology and innovation.
Plus, students will have opportunities for internships, apprenticeships, and further education.
