How to get involved?
Young people wanting to become a presenter on YouthFM participate in the Radio Production and Induction Training, which is offered twice a year, at no cost, during the April and September school holidays. Participants must be aged between 15 and 25.
Why Join YouthFM?
YouthFM provides an excellent opportunity for young people to develop and demonstrate transferable skills that increase their employability. Skill development occurs in public speaking, written communication, verbal communication, research, team work, time management, leadership and building independence. Many presenters report increased confidence, social networks and clarity in future direction through their involvement with the program.
YouthFM may also act as a stepping stone to other leisure or career pursuits in the radio and media industries, and presenters will receive information about how to take the next step where applicable. In addition, a graduation ceremony is held each year to celebrate presenters skills and achievements and present awards for ‘Show of the Year’ and ‘Feature of the Year’. The celebration also serves to welcome newly trained presenters and farewell presenters who are exiting the program.
