Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.


Volunteers Like You
You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.


Parents, PJs and Pies
Wear your PJs and join us for a fun-filled family event as we and our partners at Dropping Back in and Healthy Families of Faulkner and Conway Counties share education resources on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.! “Parents, PJs and Pies” will feature a BBQ lunch, giveaways, fun activities and special “Llama Llama Red Pajama” gift bags.

Coming to AETN on Thursday, Aug. 25, “Back Road Barns” travels through rural Arkansas on a visual road trip to classic barns that have long been a part of our culture. See a preview of what you have to look forward to by scrolling through viewer photo submissions for a special segment of the AETN original film.
