Radio Rookies is a New York Public Radio initiative that provides teenagers with the tools and training to create radio stories about themselves, their communities and their world.

Since 1999, Radio Rookies has been conducting workshops across New York, in predominantly under-resourced neighborhoods, training young people to use words and sounds to tell true stories. Upon completion, the Rookies’ documentaries air on WNYC – usually during Morning Edition (5am to 9am weekdays on WNYC 93.9 FM, 6am to 10am on WNYC AM 820 and online at wnyc.org)

Radio Rookies typically runs one or two workshops a year, each lasting anywhere from four to eight months. During the workshops, Rookie Reporters learn everything about radio journalism: from how to conduct an interview and develop a story to how to craft a script and digitally edit their audio. There is no fee, and the program provides all the equipment and instruction needed.

A division of Sound Portraits,  Youth Portraits seeks to give voice to young people who have been in prison; to give them the tools to tell their own stories, to teach then an important set of skills, and to empower them to speak up about the experiences that have made them who they are.  Teachers can use the Youth Portraits stories to help other young people explore their sense of self.  A 60-page study guide provides a prescriptive curriculum with lesson objectives and end-of-chapter tests and invites students to relate to the narrators and learn from their stories.
