ZUMIX, a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award-winning East Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth and building community through music and the arts, was recently awarded a Low Power FM license to expand community media by transitioning
from online to a broadcast radio station in 2016.
The Youth & Community Radio VISTA will serve by leading
multiple initiatives, in collaboration with ZUMIX's Radio Coordinator,
to develop the capacity for the future broadcast station in the following ways:
a volunteer program for ZUMIX Radio, recruiting and managing
approximately 50 youth and adult volunteers through a Radio Advisory
Board and youth mentorship program.
ZUMIX Radio's Youth Advisory Council, developing curriculum for
approximately 10 youth to engage in decision-making around programming
and outreach for the station.
capacity at East Boston High School for a future radio station, working
with school officials, teachers, and students to plan curriculum for
radio programming at the school.
new curriculum for youth and adult DJ training with an emphasis on
creating broadcast radio content relevant to our local community.
