CBAA Webinars

Webinar: Youth in Community Media

enadmin, 12th August 2014

Presented by Jonathan Brown, Tess Lawley & Corrine Brislin, this webinar will discuss the value of youth volunteers at your station.

One of the guiding principles of community broadcasting is to pursue access and equity for people and issues not adequately represented in other media. An important element of this is for the sector to provide a voice for youth and youth issues. In addition to this, the webinar will also serve as a precursor to the youth caucus to be held at the 2014 CBAA Conference.

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is for youth involved in Australian community radio and television stations, stations for whom youth broadcasting reflects the needs of their community of interest and people at stations and stations looking to broaden youth involvement at their organisation.
