Education & Outreach

WTVI is on air, online and all around the Charlotte area. We’re active across our 13-county viewing area covering local stories for Carolina Impact  and Carolina Business Review, delivering literacy training to parents and teachers, offering community health screenings and financial literacy workshops, hosting community conversations, previewing upcoming PBS programs, and more.


For Teachers & Childcare Providers

Contact Beverly Dorn-Steele, Director of Education & Outreach, for more information on free early literacy workshops for childcare providers and preschool teachers.
