About the Youth Broadcasting Program

The Youth Broadcasting Program is an extension of our school-based Project Y Program and provides an ongoing opportunity for students 12 – 18 years to continue to engage with 4RFM on a volunteer basis.

The Youth Broadcasting Program is primarily a music-based program with students regularly programming and presenting their music programs LIVE on air as well as producing quality audio for community ads & station promotion (stings), sourcing & editing music and in 2018 we will be once again offering Magazine Writing & Research, Website design & Social Media Management components to the program for those who are interested.

We will also be adding a SECOND afternoon to the program for new students interested in participating and this second session will be suited to new or emerging youth radio broadcasters.  All interested & eligible* students, should apply on the form below by Monday January 29 to be considered for Term One.
