Meet the Youth Leadership Committee!

In South Africa, 16 June marks Youth Day. A day set aside to honour the young South Africans who fought in the 1976 Soweto Uprising, and to celebrate the youth in the country.

To mark the occasion, we want to introduce our 2024/2025 Youth Leadership Committee (YLC). This year the cohort consists of nine senior youth reporters from Alex FM, Aganang FM, Moutse Community Radio Station, Connect Radio, Emalahleni FM, Vibe FM, Nkqubela FM, Unitra FM and Radio Atlantis.

The YLC makes sure our programs are truly youth-led. They help inform how we design our projects and ensure that they are relevant to their communities. The group also troubleshoots how we roll things out to make sure there’s a seamless transition from drawing board to practice – and eventually to live radio. This group of impassioned young reporters is our first stop for ideas and feedback on Radio Workshop’s curriculum. With that being said, let’s meet the YLC!
