Young people in Hertfordshire are making their voices – and their music – heard through a radio station that has secured its future for at least the next two years.
YOR Radio, managed by Groundwork Hertfordshire, is now broadcasting three nights a week.
Groundwork is delivering the project as part of its involvement in the Young People Friendly Neighbourhoods programme. YPFN, a major initiative funded by the Department for Education, will give young people aged 11-19 the chance to shape and run youth services with local residents in their communities.
Diana Hedley, Environmental Youth Worker at Groundwork Hertfordshire, said, “YOR Radio is a fantastic project as it gives local young people the opportunity to have a voice and be part of a service to their community.
“I’d like to thank all our sponsors and partners for making this programme possible.
“Our long-term ambition is to make the station sustainable through advertising and sponsorship and for the young people to run it themselves.”
You can listen to YOR Radio at www.yorradio.co.uk or show your support via the station’s Facebook page.
