Youth Voice

WSKG launched the Youth Voice media education initiative in June 2012.  Through the power of media, high school students in the Southern Tier of New York State investigate topics they feel are important to them and their communities.  Students produced their own NPR-style radio segments, offering the community a chance to experience an often-unheard voice of local teens.

WSKG premiered special Youth Voice radio programming on February 3 thru February 7, 2014.  Students' stories aired during Morning Edition at 7:30AM and All Things Considered at 5:30PM.  All students' stories are available for listening below or on our SoundCloud page.  ...
