LocalNews New youth radio program to be launched by: – February 2, 2012center_img Tweet Share A new radio programme geared at developing leadership skills among the youth and hearing what affects them will be officially launched in Dominica today.L.I.S.T.E.N which means Lessons Impacting Students to Empowerment Now, the brainchild of Rhoda St. John of the Generations of Opportunities Organization is geared towards highlighting the positive image of young people.St. John told an exclusive interview with Dominica Vibes News that more often than not only the negative things which young people do are highlighted in society, particularly in the media and she believes that the LISTEN programme is one way to change this trend.“Many times we hear everything that is negative where the youth are concerned is always quick to hit the media, everything bad is always quick to hit the media but when it comes to the positive things it doesn’t hit the media. What we are trying to do is to get the positive image of our young people, the positive voice that they have to offer we would like to get that into society; we would like to get that across the Caribbean.”The program which will be hosted by four young people on Vibes Radio, Dominica’s newest internet radio will be simultaneously aired by 12 Caribbean radio stations including Antigua, Anguilla, Montserrat, Grenada, St. Kitts, St. Vincent, St. Thomas and GuyanaSt. John explained the reason for partnering with other radio stations across the Caribbean for this youth programme.“We have to understand that when one island is destroyed all the others feel it. There’s no reason for us to pretend that it is not our concern for as we cherish and protect our individualities remember we are all called islands of the Caribbean. Anything that affects one island affects all the islands and therefore so we figure it is in the best interest to have a youth radio programme across the entire Caribbean so that the young persons can share their views, share concerns and let their voices be heard.”LISTEN will be aired every Saturday from 3 to 4pm on Vibes Radio and will feature several educational discussions including managements, saving, a tourism essay competition among others.According to St. John, “Our leaders of tomorrow are our youth of today and we need to train them now, they have a voice and they are the change; we are going out and they are coming in and they are our change makers”.The official launching will take place at the Fort Young Hotel from 3pm and will be broadcast live on http://www.vibesradio.dm and the 12 other radio stations across the Caribbean and includes.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
