RadioActive Youth Media


RadioActive, now in its 16th year, is an award-winning youth journalism and radio storytelling workshop at KUOW. Last year RadioActive served 900 teenagers at 25 schools and community organizations. Teens apply for the program; once selected, they are paid for their 6-week session, as they study journalism, sound recording, editing, interviewing, script writing and speaking on the air. The initiative actively recruit participants who are underserved by high quality arts programs, including incarcerated youth, refugees youth, youth in low-income housing.
