Is it good for kids, teachers,
the community, the world?

Calling All Global Youth Media Member Stations! 

Inspired by design thinking via media makers & in-depth, integrity-infused reporting like National Public Radio, Global Youth Media (GYM) is a student-led, community journalism platform facilitated by Inspire Citizens, their GYM student media team, international student reporters, & global partnerships with international podcasts & acclaimed journalists.

 

 

Case Study 1:
Judy P (EAL)

Judy, a recent EAL intermediate-level arrival, found her voice by embracing her role as the humanities class, town hall facilitator for the campus radio station and later became president of the HS Chapter of Futures Public Radio. She has since interviewed Brooklyn musicians Overcoats and continues to work on campus stories centered on issues such as transitions from MS to HS, as well as stories on the wellness components of the school cafeteria. 

Students often lack access to school administrators, especially those students from an EAL background.

Judy has since become the president of the High School Futures Public Radio Club and led a recruitment campaign in the high school cafeteria that resulted in a new HS reporter staff in 2017. Ten HS students were added to the team of 35 MS and UES student journalists.

Case Study 2:
Evan L (Learning Support)

Evan was a student with identified challenges with oral and written expression. He would often times spend a considerable amount of time searching for words which left him unable to respond to questions or to participate in class discussions.  Although he was a great kid, his academic self concept was low because he was quiet and afraid to speak out in front of others. Evan’s experience with FPR helped to strengthen his processing, develop his word finding skills, developing his spoken confidence, improved his turn around and response time and allowed to shift from being a behind the scenes leader to speaker and leader in Futures Public Radio. These skills transferred over into his academic content classes, and even MAP scores, and now he is a confident, integral member of our classes both academically and socially.

Evan has become a tech leader in the program, learning the intricacies of the FPR tricaster and leading tech support for the FPR live broadcasting booth in the cafeteria.

Within 24-hours of finding out Luka Lesson was coming to visit FPR, Evan set up the cameras, researched a few of Luka's poems, and met the interview team at lunch to prepare the direction of the interview.
