PBS Charlotte’s commitment to community outreach includes nearly 100 literacy workshops which impact more than 6,000 children annually, and our new four-year COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT 3-D Project DREAMERS-DOERS-DESTINY equips disadvantaged students with leadership skills and career pathways that can pull them out of poverty.  We work with three area high schools in the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs. Our award-winning team of reporters and producers mentor high school journalism students in creating content that could be shown nationally.

We also offer community screenings to introduce viewers to new PBS programs like “The Vietnam War” and “Victoria” on MASTERPIECE.

We hope you’ll consider adding your support of PBS Charlotte along with the many individuals, families and organizations who are passionate about public media.

Your ongoing support will help us continue opening new worlds of endless possibilities for people across our region.
