2021 Youth Reporting Institute Listening Party
It's been a summer unlike any other for students in North Carolina.
And as students adapted to the continued obstacles brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, so has the WUNC Youth Reporting Institute. Last year, we had our first virtual institute, but we love taking it to the next level! So for 2021, WUNC’s Youth Reporting Institute went hybrid!
Youth reporters had access to recording equipment, audio editing software, virtual trainings and learned about radio journalism with the help of Zoom and on the ground reporting. The result was a summer of skill-building and new ways of making connections with their communities.
To celebrate, the 2021 Youth Reporting Institute hosted WUNC’s first OUTDOOR listening party. Hosted at Southeast Raleigh YMCA, this event will featured their audio work and conversations about the stories that are important to their development as the next generation of journalists. If you weren't able to make it, watch the recap below!
