The Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program (AZYEP) believes youth have an important voice and the community needs opportunities to listen in. We teach youth radio broadcasting and partner with KDNK to have programs on the air each week and a monthly public affairs show.
Over the past 15 years, our program has continued to provide transformational experiences for 2,000 local youth, providing them with access to media education, broadcast journalism, technical training and production activities.
