Public Service and Outreach
Serving our audiences is at the core of everything we do. Providing information to engage the public is our mission. Many of our on-air offerings are extended by services and local outreach that national cable networks simply do not provide.
- Ready to Learn and Ready to Lead in Literacy are outreach programs that encourage parents and caregivers to limit TV time for their children, watch with the children and use our programs as a learning tool, along with related books and activities. ValleyPBS conducts dozens of workshops annually for parents, teachers and caregivers, impacting thousands of children.
- PBS.org is the most frequently visited K-12 web site. Educators visit it more often then those from CNN, The New York Times, The Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institute.
- PBS.org features TeacherSource, an online one-stop resource for teachers to obtain more than 3,000 free lesson plans and activities, based on national and state standards.
- Valley Public television is currently involved in a Domestic Violence Awareness Campaign, including the airing of three programs on this subject and outreach services.
