Generation Voice aims to expose Delaware high school students to digital media arts and provides hands-on learning about telling our own stories on digital platforms and radio.

Generation Voice not only aims to expose Delaware high school students to digital media arts but also provides hands-on learning about how to tell their own stories on an array of digital platforms and radio. We are inspired by programs like Youth Radio in Oakland, California and Joe Richman’s Radio Diaries.

This hands-on exposure and involvement in the digital media arena provides invaluable and innovative career building opportunities and provides students a platform to express their own voices at a crucial time in their lives. In a world that doesn’t always listen to its children, our projects are grounded in a need to put the young person’s perspective first.
