Donate to youth radio

Dear Editor:

For the past 11 years, the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program has been teaching youth radio broadcasting. We partner with our community radio station, KDNK, and have trained over 700 local youth to be volunteer announcers.

Please make an end-of-the-year contribution. Your donation will help us continue teaching youth radio and providing opportunities for young people to make a positive contribution to our community.

For the past three years, we have been teaching a high school radio broadcasting class to students from Aspen, Basalt, Roaring Fork, Bridges, CRMS, Glenwood and Yampah high schools. Students learn marketable skills in communication, teamwork and technology.

Each month, students broadcast a youth public affairs program. This year, some of the topics covered have been homelessness, education, politics and parenting.

Please listen to our broadcasting projects online at kdnk.org, click on Youth Radio. E-mail me for more information at youthradio@kdnk.org. You can send your tax-deductible gift to the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program, P.O. Box 1945, Carbondale, CO 81623. Thank you.
