The Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program (AZYEP) develops leadership, multiculturalism and identity by providing training and opportunity to youth in community broadcasting. AZYEP gives voice to youth ideas, experiences and events.
Over the past 14 years, our program has continued to provide transformational experiences for over 1,200 local youth, providing them with access to media education, broadcast journalism, technical training and production activities.
Each month, we broadcast a youth public affairs show. Tune in the third Wednesday of each month.
