Outreach

Arizona PBS is embedded across the state, providing important award-winning outreach services that foster lifelong learning and promote the arts.

Arizona PBS Education & Community Impact (Educational Outreach)

Arizona PBS Education & Community Impact (Educational Outreach) specializes in supporting educators and students in the classroom and families at home with PBS educational content focused on national, common core and state standards. Since 2010, the Arizona PBS Educational Outreach team has reached nearly 750,000 families and more than 60,000 teachers and teachers in training across the state through large-scale events and special community development workshops.

From the Grand Canyon to the U.S.-Mexico border, Educational Outreach’s early childhood work has focused on helping families of diverse backgrounds prepare their children to enter kindergarten by providing free online apps and games and off-screen activities on early learning. Educational assets are available through the Arizona PBS LearningMedia online portal in English, Spanish and Navajo. Educational Outreach also provides professional development services to help guide individuals into careers in early childhood education through the Arizona Early Childhood Career and Professional Development Registry, an online member community for aspiring educators. Arizona PBS is the only PBS station in the country to administrate a registry and college scholarship program for early childhood educators.
