The Prince’s Trust are partnering with Reform Radio & Children in Need to give young people the chance to create, produce and record their very own radio show – which could include:

  • Creating and performing songs, raps, poetry, etc…
  • Presenting skills & creative ways to raise awareness of issues they passionate about
  • More back stage roles away from the mic like production, social media, editing, design, etc…

(N.B. everyone between 16-18 years old would be eligible as long as they meet the criteria and can commit to the week, even if they are in full-time education)
