2009 Youth News Stories Air in September

Tune in to the KFAI Evening News at 6 p.m. weeknights in September to hear the latest stories from the 2009 Youth News Initiative. Eight girls ages 13-18 spent six weeks in an intensive summer training course learning news gathering, recording, interviewing and editing skills.

Story topics range from exploring rites of passage, living with violence, discrimination against women in the work place, exploring the meaning of beauty, racial segregation amongst teens, political activism, an alternative high school, and Somali students exploring studies in the liberal arts.

Stories begin airing Tuesday, September 8.
