San Francisco Community Radio is an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) educational organization continuing the longtime tradition of community radio pairing with students of all ages to teach them about radio. Students work with SFCR volunteers both behind the microphone and behind the scenes. All students are welcome!
Current Educational Programs:
Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters
In collaboration with the Lycée Française de San Francisco, the San Francisco Community Radio is proud to participate in an after school journalism class that allows a group of middle school and high school students to learn about journalism and radio.
During the course the students listen to examples of radio and TV interviews, audio reports and audio documentaries and learn interview techniques as well as audio recording and microphone techniques. Their audio projects are then aired on SFCR.
