INSITE YOUTH PROJECT MISSION STATEMENT
The INSITE YOUTH PROJECT provides an opportunity for youth under the age of 26 years to gain skills in radio broadcasting that is in the context of an ongoing community radio station, INSITE. We offer a safe and supportive setting where young people from all walks of life can gather to share their ideas amongst themselves as well as learn the technical skills needed to broadcast their thoughts, concerns and talents to the larger community.
Young people learn the basic skills of recording, audio editing, and engineering so that their messages are youth driven and youth determined. Being part of the larger radio community also enables the young people to branch out and form mentor relationships with more experienced adult programmers at the station to further develop their skills and interests. Producing radio is an exacting task that helps the young people involved to increase self-confidence, communication skills, critical thinking skills, computer literacy, time management skills, personal responsibility, and gives them the opportunity to work as part of a team to produce a final product.
The KINSITE YOUTH PROJECT believes that providing young people
the opportunity to have their Voices on the Air empowers them to become informed, contributing, and engaged members of our community.
