Youth Radio was proud to be a part of NewCo Oakland 2015! With a mission to “identify, celebrate, and connect the engines of positive change in our society,” NewCo brought together some of Oakland’s biggest innovators in tech and media to share their work with community and industry leaders.
Our staff and youth participants welcomed a group of guests across tech, nonprofit, and business industries to see what Youth Radio is all about. Attendees joined YR Project Associates Shyra and Elizabeth on a tour of Youth Radio headquarters. including its ground-level media production classroom, and second floor newsroom and state of the art recording studio.
Next door at YR’s 1719 Broadway Arts Venue, NewCo guests engaged in a presentation and discussion hosted by Youth Radio Interactive Program Manager Asha Richardson and YR Fellow Storm White. Here, our guests got an inside look at the latest youth produced media, from radio, video, and online web interactives. Three lucky volunteers also got to test out YR’s latest youth-designed mobile app, Bucket Hustle!
Thanks to NewCo staff and guests for joining us and learning about what YR participants are creating!
