The Youth FM Team

Scheduled on

Youth FM is a community access program enabling 15-25 year olds to produce radio targeted to youth.

Youth FM Radio Training is a unique opportunity for young people to learn about radio, interviewing and producing documentaries.

The training leads to an opportunity to become a member of the Youth FM team to produce features for radio on an ongoing basis in a supportive team environment.

Involvement with the Youth FM Program provides an excellent opportunity for young people to develop and demonstrate transferable skills that increase their employability. Skills include public speaking, written and verbal communication and technical radio abilities.

Youth FM may also act as a stepping stone to other volunteer or career pursuits in the radio and media industries.

How to get involved

Recruitment of Youth FM participants occurs twice a year in April and October.

YouthFM is a joint initiative of Cities of Burnside, Campbelltown, Norwood Payneham & St Peters, Prospect and Walkerville in collaboration with Three D Radio.

To be eligible for Youth FM you must live, work or study in one of the partnering Council areas. Please contact those councils for further information.

Youth FM training

Youth FM participants attend two days of training, which provides them with the necessary skills and knowledge to join the Youth FM team.

Youth FM training covers:

  • Youth FM overview
  • broadcast law
  • programming
  • technical skills

Participants attend a series of training sessions, after which they are put into teams which coordinate one live radio show a month on Youth FM.
