Radiometres - Youth Radio Alliance & Exchange
This is a two year collaborative project, generously supported in part by the CRFC, will team up youth from Kingston’s “The Cave” with Toronto’s Radio Regent "Catch da Flava" youth radio show.
Both stations will empower diverse youth to create and produce radio documentaries & PSAs around art, culture, and
social justice themes that are relevant to their lives and reflective of their communities. This project will enable
youth from diverse backgrounds to develop core competencies related to programming and development; this will
occur through training and mentorship opportunities related to the creation and broadcast of radio features and
spoken word programming.
This project is in partnership with Kingston Radio Station The Cave 91.9FM
91.9 The Cave, is a community, not-for-profit station in Kingston, Ontario run as a focus program in the Limestone District School Board. We broadcast throughout the school year and hire student managers and support volunteers to continue to serve the community
during the summer months. Each semester, we invite students and volunteers from across the community of Kingston to participate at CKVI radio as hosts, programmers, sound engineers, public relations coordinators, journalists, interviewers, reviewers, and charity fundraisers in order to perform all of the associated jobs involved in a CRTC licensed station.
