RadioActive’s 2017 Summer Workshop

In this fun, challenging, and hands-on workshop, youth ages 16-18 learn about journalism, audio recording, audio editing, interviewing, writing for broadcast, and speaking on the air. They’ll also build their confidence and leadership skills, and get paid a $1200 stipend for successfully completing the program. There’s no previous experience necessary!

During the workshop, eight participants will work collaboratively to create feature radio stories and podcasts on topics of their choice that will be published on and shared at a public listening party! Best of all, RadioActive participants have the chance to amplify their voices by telling true stories about their communities, and the topics that are important to them.

Give a listen to some of the incredible work produced in past RadioActive workshops!
