At Youth on Assignment, middle and high school students go on assignment to produce multi-media stories. Students of Youth on Assignment are trained to be youth journalists: producing, reporting, and filing stories for our rich media outlets. After reporting successfully, students can decide to train to be a contributor on our radio show or podcast series. Smart phones, laptop computers, tablets, and hand-held microphones make these on-location assignments possible like never before.  Many of these stories are produced for our talk radio show on WSUM 91. 7 FM.
