SPNN Youth Programs provide BIPOC and LGBTQIA young people with the opportunity to create community media with a lasting impact. It is a place for creative exploration, diverse voices, and for artistic vision. Youth come together to learn and grow their media skills, then apply those skills to their own podcast, shoots for other youth serving organizations, their own creative projects, and mentoring other youth in learning media skills.  

Youth can grow their skills either as a part of the Speaking of Youth program or individually as a part of the Createch program.

First Person Productions, a training program located at MIGIZI's midtown center, equips young Native Americans with 21st century media skills. FPP differentiates itself from other media programs because of the social enterprise aspect of the program which allows youth to develop not only expertise in videography and photography, but also management, digital marketing, and interpersonal skills.
