The CFURadio Youth Academy is brought to you in part by generous support of Our Community Supported Events & Canada Summer Jobs!


At the CFURadio Youth Academy, students learn broadcasting and podcasting skills, audio recording/editing capability, receive positive adult mentorship from CFUR DJs & Volunteers in a fun environment, and a whole lot more. The goal of this program is to impart positive thinking, skills, technical knowledge, develop career goals, hands-on kinaesthetic learning, curation processes, technical knowledge, and confidence to young people in our community. This is achieved via the art of broadcasting.

Check out this great vid from our 2018 Academy. For three two-week periods each summer, CFURadio 88.7 FM hosts four campers at a time, trains them in recording arts, provides opportunities to practice broadcast programming, hone techniques, curate according to taste, and culminate these skills into a one hour radio program. These skills translate to podcasting capabilities and familiarity as well.
