Youth Media Health Institute

This Youth Media Health Institute focused on Healthy Food, Farms & Gardens.

South Carolina ETV has a strong record of community service that includes civil rights programming, youth media literacy projects and technology training for teachers. The SCETV American Graduate Youth Media Institute, focusing on health and community engagement, was held at SCETV from June 8 – 12, 2015. Students used their video and reporting skills to create short documentaries on healthy food, farms and gardens. By focusing on sustainable food production and nutrition, the Youth Media Institute helped students make the connection between a healthy lifestyle and their own educations.

Does sustainable farming or gardening interest you? How about the health benefits? Even a small garden could substantially change your life for the better!
