High school students between the ages of 14 and 18 are eligible to apply for our free, in-house training programs. After six months, you are eligible to apply for paid production internships with the YR Media enterprise.

In your first three months, you’ll produce a radio show and learn the fundamentals of journalism, podcasting, video, photography, and design. Class meets Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

In your second three months, you’ll specialize in one media concentration: Journalism, Audio Production, Design & Illustration or Video & Photography. Students graduate with a media portfolio. Class meets Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
