In the Summer of 2012 WUNC established its first ever Youth Radio Institute. That station hired five young people -- and two mentors -- to produce reports from their communities.

The WUNC Summer 2012 Youth Radio Institute was made possible by a grant from the Grable Foundation. It's part of WUNC's American Graduate Project -- an on-going series of reports and engagement activities exploring the drop-out crisis in North Carolina. Our American Graduate work is made possible by the contribution of WUNC listeners and through gifts from the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation, Farrington Foundation, GlaxoSmithKline, Goodnight Educational Foundation, State Farm, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
