Words of Youth began as a way to include guests, visitors and friends of WhidbeyAir’s show Positive Vibrations host Desirae in the radio process without them having to produce their own show.

Thanks to Positive Vibrations host Desirae and her engineer Lexi for embracing this project and helping each of the Words of Youth participants understand the process.

Words of Youth has been folded into the 3 year old Youth Radio Lab Program at WhidbeyAir. Participants, with permission from their legal guardians, come to the WhidbeyAir studio once a week to design, write, record and develop each episode of Words of Youth.

The first Words of Youth episode “Inspiration” was a collective effort by all of the Whidbey students involved.   Each participant worked hard to make this episode the best it can be.  In the future many more episodes will be produced by the Words of Youth on the Rock of Whidbey team.

WhidbeyAir would like to thank all of the parents and guardians of our Words of Youth participants for their permissions, and for bringing their kids to and from the WhidbeyAir studio for writing and production meetings.

With only an hour and a half each week to work on this project WhidbeyAir is proud of each of our Words of Youth participants.
