Only a couple more weeks to go!


I only have a couple more weeks of stand in youth advocating until Erin gets back! I'm excited to have some more free time again- but I'll definitely miss doing all this outreach and mingling!

Today I spent most of my time returning emails- its really cool to continually hear about what the school districts and communities in the Portland Area are up to. I feel more in touch with my community just because I'm starting to get a grip on whats going on on the large scale- the need for alternative education, lack of funds for programs, and hearing the struggles that some schools are going through just to stay open!

The Underground for May 2009


Today we successfully pulled off our show with me as adult advocate! It was amazing to finally sit back and see what all the other youth can do! It was pretty smooth- a few of the usual glitches and a lot of freaking out behind the scenes- but there was some great content and everyone ended up having tons of fun! Our newest member of the collective- Sean- even volunteered and happily read the community calendar live on air!

Viva Youth Radio!



First Day as Assistant Youth Advocate!


Today went suprisingly smoother than anticipated! Some talented youngsters from the Young Ladies Radio Project came down to the station to interview people from the community about Food and Food in Emergencies. Two of the ladies went for a stroll to aquire more audio for a vox pop.

I can't wait to hear the finished interviews that these ladies create! They interviewed this guy from the City of Portland who helps coordinate stuff in emergency situations- he was really animated and full of fascinating information. Before we started recording he made a comment that the Government doesn't help people- thats not what it does and thats not what it was ever meant to do. I'm a little disappointed that we don't have that recorded :)

Tryin this out!


This is admitedly my first blog ever... Membership drive time is always crazy fun here at the station... we have people running around constantly trying to make everything smooth :) Somehow this drive seems more relaxed than those in the past.
