GRLZradio is a unique,...
...youth leadership, and development program, that utilizes broadcast journalism as a catalyst for personal growth and social change. Our teens develop and produce their own fun, informative, and socially-conscious radio shows.
Additionally, through our GRLZwrite program, participants have the opportunity to take part in our creative writing and blogging curriculum, publishing their original short stores, poems, and opinion pieces on our website.
Our program builds job skills, self-esteem, and leadership capacity by training more than 120 teen girls annually in all aspects of outreach, radio production, programming and blogging. Outcomes of this innovative model include: 100% of participants graduate high school and are accepted into college, they receive professional level on-air personality experience, along with industry standard training in broadcast technology. As a result more than 80% of our participants report increased self-esteem and self-efficacy annually.
