Weekly Youth Radio Programs

Our weekly live youth shows include music, interviews and candid conversations between youth hosts and their guests in both English and Spanish. Students have creative license over their radio programs by selecting the music and the overall content. They learn how to engineer the mixing board and host live microphone breaks. All students ages 8 to 18 from Aspen to Parachute are invited to participate in the program. In 2018, AZYEP worked with over 170 students live on the radio. DJs report that AZYEP builds their self-confidence and helps cultivate interpersonal communication and public speaking skills.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

AZYEP partners with over 44 teachers in 22 schools to create radio projects with students in 3rd through 12th grade. Students record work that is showcased on KDNK for an authentic audience. During the 2018-2019 school year, AZYEP broadcast over 1,290 youth on KDNK. The projects provide community connection and insight into youth culture. Students and teachers report that radio projects offer more meaning and purpose to their classroom assignments; students state they feel valued in the community.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

AZYEP announcers attend a weekly news class and host monthly youth news programs. The hosts collaborate with the KDNK news team to select topics, plan interviews and engage in on-air conversations. Interview topics in the past year have included discrimination and bullying, Colorado and national environmental issues, mental wellness, vaping, historical interviews and art. The AZYEP news team reports that the weekly class empowers them to use their voice about issues they deem important.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

AZYEP offers a peer mentor program. Our staff invites experienced teenage radio announcers to teach younger students during our summer workshops and weekly radio programs. Peer mentors serve as role models while they share their knowledge and experience with younger students. AZYEP offers a stipend to students who participate as a mentor. Youth mentoring helps participants build relationships.
