AZYEP empowers youth from diverse backgrounds to express themselves, build self-confidence, and develop leadership skills through community broadcasting. AZYEP offers an inclusive, safe space for students to discover and use their voice. We facilitate learning opportunities through four programs on KDNK: live music broadcast, public affairs, youth news team and classroom collaborations.
