Mission

SLB Radio Productions, Inc. (SLB) uses radio and audio to amplify voices of youth—and members of other communities whose stories are often marginalized—to educate, empower, and build community.

We believe that all people have the capacity to develop authentic voices and know that their voices matter—that they matter—and that their voices can be used for self-expression, inquiry, and change.

SLB incorporates these methods into real world learning opportunities that keep students deeply engaged as they sharpen academic skills (e.g. speaking, active listening, reading, writing); workforce readiness skills (interviewing, working in teams, meeting deadlines, following a process, sifting through data); technical skills (digital storytelling, editing); and life skills (creative expression, critical thinking, confidence, cooperation, respect for others, curiosity).

    Our programs are made possible with support from local and national foundations, corporations, government agencies, businesses and individuals who believe in the power of radio to build community, amplify marginalized voices and provide a platform for project-based learning.
