BYkids: Real-world films for kids, by kids.

Talented young storytellers from around the world are paired with seasoned filmmakers to create powerful documentaries about their lives.

In partnership with public television and education innovators, we share the films and their activation resources to help make global issues feel personal, relevant and actionable for millions of students.

Our national series is broadcast on public television to 83 million households. Our educational action partners reach 50 million students through Discovery Education, social media and our in-person/virtual events. To engage students, we provide free innovative educational materials that reach 4.5 million teachers through Discovery Education, 1.8 million teachers through PBS LearningMedia and 150 countries through PenPal Schools.

Our work serves as a catalyst for change—igniting important conversations and inspiring a new generation of social activists.
