WTIP Youth Radio Project 

WTIP's "Engaging Youth Through Radio" project features the work of YRP students. These short 3- to 5-minute features are by youth for youth, and explore issues and themes with a youth focus.

WTIP’s "Engaging Youth through Radio" project provides local youth with enhanced opportunities for self-exploration, self-expression, and community involvement by promoting their unique perspectives and highlighting their valuable contributions. This series features these students and the audio documentaries they've created that reflect the concerns and opinions of the local youth culture.
