The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
March 2014)

Budget:
$124,000
Category:
Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served:
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Adults
None

Program Description:

Youth Voice uses media to empower at-risk youth to tell stories about their lives, families, communities, and broader socioeconomic issues (e.g. the importance of graduating high school). These reflective stories are crafted with the guidance of WSKG educators and partner organizations. Once completed, the stories are broadcast across the WSKG 21-county coverage area, giving youth voice in their communities.

Program Long-Term Success:

Youth participants will build public speaking skills, as well as enhance self-confidence, accountability, critical thinking and job skills.

Program Short-Term Success:

Youth participants reflect on their lives in context of the larger community, gaining invaluable insights and being able to share those insights with WSKG radio and web-based audiences.

Program Success Monitored by:

Tracking by teachers; Pre- and post-surveys by teachers, students (and sometimes parents) alike

Program Success Examples:

One student participant spoke of being empowered, saying "I liked putting my voice out there. For any teen that puts their voice out there- Youth Voice is important because we are the future of the world.” A parent of one student says "...I think the program was a great success...The Youth Voice program helped the students with their confidence and communication. They now have a good understanding of how to use radio equipment and how radio works. It also helped them learn how to be focused and committed to a task which those skills will help them succeed as they continue high school and then on to college.”
