TV-Turnoff Week Works

TV-Turnoff Week works because… volunteer organizers from around North Carolina tailor activities to meet the needs and interests of their own communities.  You make a difference!

TV-Turnoff Week works because... children are delighted to have the time to do things that are more active and fun, like playing outside, and they love spending more time with their parents.

TV-Turnoff Week works because …it is experiential education.  Many of us have never gone a week without watching television.  We often find that when we take a break from television as the default mode, we discover that life is more fun when we do more and watch less.

Our 1995 TV-Turnoff Week workshop was a wonderful success

Parents and community leaders came to learn how to host fun and educational TV-Turnoff Week events and learned about many great ideas from experienced organizers.  Our guest speaker,
Frank Vespe, Executive Director of TV-Turnoff Network educated everyone on the impact television has on our society and children and encouraged us to start where we are.

In 2004 . . . .
Tookie's Toys in Cameron Village
had a creative event with “Fun without TV” Art Show."  Every child who submitted a piece received a Blue Ribbon.  Families picked up their pieces at the end of the Week and enjoyed a reception to celebrate their success.
