Youth On Air

"We don't need radio to make community happen, we need radio to highlight the community that's already happening," - Richard Jones, Radio Station Manager.

We empower youth by giving them opportunity to share their voice and by teaching them applicable life skills such as collaboration, interviewing, recording, engineering, etc. Turn your dial to 95.5FM on Fridays 3-5pm to hear Youth On Air. Special thanks to The Foundation for Madison Public Schools and other donors who make it possible.

Dreaming Better Worlds

We encourage youth to imagine what their ideal world would be. We ask what would they add and what would they take away in attempts to get them thinking about social justice.

Radio Readers​

Led by Programming Team member Mari Hansen, WWMV-LP is connecting with elementary school students through the Radio Readers Club. We encourage reading and writing by giving youth radio as an outlet of expression.
