This site is a retrospective of RadioActive Youth Media. The program ended on April 30, 2024. This page is meant to be an information resource for our partners and donors. KUOW remains committed to supporting youth voices and community engagement initiatives through other programs at the station, and we are deeply thankful to everyone who supported RadioActive in the past. For details on the sunsetting of KUOW's RadioActive Youth Media program, please see this statement.

RadioActive Youth Media is where young people discover public radio journalism and gain access to the skills, community, and institutional resources that spur their growth as media makers. Through their stories, listeners of all ages gain a deeper understanding of young people whose voices are rarely heard by the greater public.
