I think one of the most important things we can do during these times is educate ourselves and each other about the Internet. The Internet is such an integral part of life, yet we don't really account for its influence in our schools and communities.

Teen Podcast

Media in the Middle is a teen-led podcast where they share how social media and technology informs and impacts their lives. The podcast team goes in-depth on topics that help parents, caregivers, and teachers to better understand young people and the challenges of living in an online world.

We are thankful for those who shared their voices on our podcast series!

Teen Programs
New Teen Podcast Program

This year, our podcast program is a course that is curated, overseen and supported by industry professionals specialized in education. Students spent the first half of the school year building all the skillsets needed (audio production, mixing, beats making, recording, publishing and marketing) to plan, produce and promote a professional quality podcast. 

We are beginning the second half of the school year with preparing and creating our first podcast episodes. All teens are welcome to join this second semester and be part of our podcast episodes. No experience needed!

We are also accepting applications for the 2024-2025 school year.
