RadioActive Youth Media
RadioActive is the youth media program at KUOW where youth delight in discovering public radio journalism. RadioActive supports young people’s growth as media makers by sharing access to public radio’s knowledge, skills and institutions.
RadioActive is proud to offer intensive and fun introductory radio journalism workshops for 16-18 year olds throughout the year. All RadioActive workshops are free, and participants receive stipends for their completed work. Learn how to apply for our next workshop.
RadioActive offers three introductory workshops every year. Students learn about journalism, audio recording, audio editing, interviewing, writing for broadcast and speaking on the air. They create stories on the topic of their choice.
The Summer Workshop meets daily at KUOW’s studios in the University District. Summer participants host the daily RadioActive podcast. After-School Workshops in the fall and spring meet twice a week for 12 weeks, and are offered in partnership with community organizations around the Seattle area.
Graduates of intro RadioActive workshops stay involved as advanced producers. They host and produce the monthly RadioActive podcast.
