Nexus – NLive Radio’s Youth Project
NLive Radio’s Youth Project: September – December 2021
NLive Radio has been running a youth project recently and is looking for more participants this September.
Funded by the #iwill and Northamptonshire Community Foundation, NLive Radio is investing in Northampton’s future presenters. We have ran a youth project since June this year that has encouraged some young people of our town to engage with local issues, learn radio skills and, ultimately, work towards making their own show.
We did two, one-week intensive courses over the summer holiday as well!
It has gone so well, we are offering it again!
From September 25th, Station Assistant and project organiser Paul Giffney will run another project and is looking for participants to fill a groups of between six and ten students.*
These weekly sessions will be taking place:
Saturdays 1-3.30pm from September 25th – December 18th**
What is involved?
Every participant, aged between 13-18, will learn about every aspect that is involved in running a radio show. Participants will work in groups and be expected to work together to create a radio show by the end of the work – they will learn invaluable skills in radio editing, production and interviewing whilst also discussing local issues and learning more about Northampton. This is an excellent opportunity to develop skills for the CV, learn more about radio and to have fun while doing all of it!
What does a participant need to bring / is there a cost??
It is a free of charge project, with no requirements apart from a willingness to engage, an interest in creating a radio show and curiosity to find out more about Northampton! All equipment is provided, but we do ask, wherever possible, that participants use their own headphones*. As we are funded by both #iwill and Northamptonshire Community Fund, all costs are covered, with snacks and drinks offered as well. (Please provide own lunch)
Don’t just take our word for it though, listen to the reasons the project is enjoyable from our first cohort of participants! Caution, contains a ‘cheesey’ comment as well!
