Youth on Air!

Youth on Air! is a continuation of the first two programs offered by the CRFC (between 2008 and 2014): the Radio Talent Development Program and the Youth Internship Program. This program offers youth a unique radio experience by means of training grants. Moreover, it is geared towards campus and community radios interested in working with young Canadians in search of training, education, and mentorship opportunities. The goal of the program is to foster radio talent and, consequently, strengthen stations’ capacities and productivity.

Youth on Air! is a pilot program launched in January 2015. During the first round of funding, the CRFC awarded $216,956 for 23 projects highlighting the importance of youth in campus and community radio stations. 

During the program’s second round of funding in 2016, $202,347 was awarded to 21 campus and community radio stations.
