General Information

The Youth DJ project strives to increase the number of youth engaged with radio and audio production by means of specialized program tracks for individual participants, as well as school facilitated trips for whole classes or groups of students. The project uses radio as a way to give voice to local youth, and also enables KWMR to work towards its goal of establishing a link to local schools by working with students and teachers to create innovative ways to enrich classroom curriculum with radio. The program currently offers three different tracks for individual youth participants:

Internship Track

KWMR's internship program is for students 14 or older*. Internships that have certain criteria in subject matter, duration, or other school-related specification can be discussed and accommodated with the station Program Director. Other students wishing to design their own internship experience will also be able to work with the Program Director and Station Manager to develop their programming ideas. Internship can be either on-air (meaning that the intern's work would involve board operating time) or off-air (meaning that the intern's work would not involve being on live radio). On-air interns will be required to complete the necessary Studio A training. On-air interns will also complete 10 hours of supervised board operation with the help of an adult mentor. Past internships have been completed by high school seniors at Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo.

Music DJ Track

The Music DJ track is available to students ages 14 and older* looking to have a regular programming spot as a music DJ. All students will receive the on-air Studio A training, and fill out a volunteer agreement form. Student DJs will also complete 10 hours of supervised board operation with the help of an adult mentor. KWMR currently has multiple student DJs doing live shows.

News Reporting/Audio Production Track

The News Reporting/Audio Production track allows students to create their own news or other audio pieces for submission. News pieces will be considered for airing during the news. Other audio production will either be aired during the times allocated for youth DJ programming, or put on a KWMR youth DJ website to be used for future airings. Students with a background in audio production are welcome to submit whenever possible. For students who do not have a background in audio production, KWMR offers production training. This training is designed specifically to give students experience with the equipment and understanding of the process of audio production. This track is a great way to get involved for youth who are unable to commit to a regular show or internship!

KWMR also has ways for whole classes or student groups to get involved!

Some options include:

  • School projects: Students can fulfill certain requirements of school projects by producing audio, coming on the radio to conduct an interview, etc.
  • Poetry readings, music, etc: we love to have classes come and read their poetry assignments, show off their music talents, or present any other academic work they have been doing as a whole!
  • School-to-career credits
  • Media programs: media programs can air their student work on the radio, or put it up on the KWMR youth site to reach a larger audience.

* 14 years is a general age requirement. The station reserves the ability to use their discretion regarding age and maturity when accepting students as interns or DJs.

KWMR thanks the Public Insight Network, the West Marin Fund, and the Bolinas-Stinson Beach Library Improvement Society for their support of the Youth DJ Project.
