Focus on – Volunteering with Community Radio Stations

This month, we want to tell you more about the world of community radio and volunteering!!
Community radio stations serve as vital hubs of communication, fostering connections and amplifying voices within local neighborhoods and diverse communities. 
At the heart of these stations are dedicated volunteers who embody the spirit of community engagement and grassroots empowerment. From hosting shows that celebrate cultural diversity to producing content that addresses pressing social issues, community radio volunteers play a pivotal role in shaping the narrative of their localities and empowering voices that may otherwise go unheard.
