Young Women’s Equity Project at KBOO

Categories:

The Portland Tribune has posted an article on the Young Women's Equity Project that we have been working with:

It can be pretty daunting for a teenage refugee girl from a different country to talk with a stranger on the street.

But it has become second nature to five girls working with the Immigration and Refugee Community Organization and KBOO (90.7 FM) radio during the past six months.

As part of IRCO’s Young Women’s Equity Project, the five girls have learned the ins and outs of the radio business – story development, interviewing, writing, producing, editing and completing programs on various topics. While IRCO helps thousands of people each year simply acclimate to life in the United States, the girls want not only to survive, but also to thrive through college years and adulthood.

Youth Collective Report: June - Dec, 2008

Categories:

Hello listeners and members, we’ve wrapped up another successful year with KBOO's Youth Collective. We’ve reached a new level of stability within the group and with new community partners, with exciting plans on the horizon.

In 2009 we saw an increase in the average age of the KBOO Youth, and now the Collective is majority teenagers. In the recent past we had a group that consisted of youth who were 19 and 20, and many who were 11 and 12.

Also within the station we have had a fair amount of school and community groups visit. In the past six months we have hosted youth from Human Solutions, a residential home outside Beaverton, youth from Helensview High School on 86th and Sumner, youth from The Pangaea Project, and youth from the Centennial Learning Center, where we did our Global Youth Service Day project last April.

Here's some information from the passing away of Lance. I've known him for years and years, probably met him at Epicenter around 1993, but I can't remember... but a world without Lance will be lonlier.
