Radio Journalism Workshop
Youth learn technical skills (audio recording, digital editing, script writing) as well as social and emotional skills (confidence, leadership, collaboration) at RadioActive. Our approach is to provide interactive workshops where participants create new work on topics they choose, while trying out hands-on skills in a safe and supportive environment.
Sometimes students are assigned a specific radio format – like “person on the street” interviews, or an interview-based profile of a single character – and other times they are given the choice to create an original poem, personal commentary, or interview-based story. Students usually work in pairs or small groups, and are assigned a RadioActive advanced producer as a mentor to help them create their final product within the assigned deadline.
