We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Description

The Youth Radio Network’s vision is to empower, teach and entertain young people, aged 13 to 25
years, through the power of music and digital technology, opening doors to the broadcast industries,
and to become more employable helping them to get the best start in life.

The Youth Radio Network is a digital place where young people can easily access and develop their skills
and interests. It acts as a sounding board for youth news and issues and promotes all youth
organizations. The Youth Radio Network's focus is on young people, and topical issues such as Bullying,
Racism, LGBT and much more.

Our music is generally chart music, and we play any young artists/bands from across the world. The aim
is to have a fresh and upbeat sound and something that young people feel; they can get involved in and
we encourage our young people to influence the music we play. There are also opportunities for our
listeners to interact with radio programmes. We will highlight any young musicians, artists or bands,
after all, it’s the internet and you never know who may be discovered next!

The Youth Radio Network is completely digital so anyone can present for us from any location! We also
want to help young people ages 16 to 25 years old get into employment and we hope that we can help
open many doors for young people looking for a career in the broadcasting industries.

This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we build our digital radio station which is directed and run by
young people. We have an ambitious programme that aims to make a difference to communities across
the UK by helping young people to develop their skills, interests and employability
We are looking to appoint a volunteer Contnet Producers to help build our organisation to the next level including the development and delivery of contnet for our website, social media channels and newsletters both internal and external for The Youth Radio Network.
