The NGY ( Next Gen Youths) are a group of young people aged 13-17 who attend radio-training workshops twice a week and deliver a live radio show on the North’s leading youth music radio station, Unity Radio.
The radio show includes music, features and information on local issues that affect young people, such as mental health and wellbeing, education, training and employment and awareness of risks to young people . By creating peer-to-peer education and social scaffolding, they are helping to increase resilience among young people while safeguarding the vulnerable and at risk.
The programme will provide you with an introduction to all the key skills required to be a great radio presenter – from interviewing and planning show features to DJing and reviewing music. Alongside this, you’ll present four live radio shows and work towards an Arts Award! Scroll down to see the weekly schedule.
