50 years of building communities
further together
As Vermonters we all help shape the future of our state and the story we tell. From small decisions to great actions it starts with the simple desire
to affect change and work together. Vermont PBS is a powerful catalyst that informs, educates and inspires. When you support Vermont PBS you
help all Vermonters learn, grow and contribute to our great state and the world.
our mission
Vermont PBS educates, informs, entertains, and inspires.
These four pillars have been driving our station further since our first broadcast in 1967.
They have helped shape who we are, the programs we produce, and the communities we build.

Vermont PBS is deeply rooted in helping Vermonter’s discover new things. Vermont Educational Television went on the air in 1967, focusing on weekday programming for classrooms. Shortly after, the station joined the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) to bring you Sesame Street, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and Reading Rainbow. Today, PBSKids, along with our sister stations, help all Vermonters learn something new every day.
