It will launch in March and will be available to listen online.

On January 14 and 15, representatives of the Regional RAISE Youth Center, the International Youth Center - Pernik and other young people attended a training session on creating audio content.

During the two days, they learned how to do interviews, how to edit sound and train their voices. They were also given several practical tasks by the trainer and their future mentor David Kalpachki. As a host of the "Events and personalities" radio broadcast on BNR Blagoevgrad, he highly appreciated the potential of the participants.

At the end of the event, the young people already had a complete concept for their show, prepared interesting topics that woprould excite their peers from the region, and thought of experts to invite for meetings and interviews.

The name of the youth show is still a secret, but it will be revealed in the coming months when everyone will be able to listen to it on Saturdays from 10am to 12pm as part of the Teen Zone radio broadcast.

Aspiring journalists will visit the radio to familiarize themselves with the various tools for processing audio materials, to feel the working atmosphere and to get to know their colleagues.

The initiative is implemented with the support of the Solidarity Fund of the Civil Union "Ravni.BG" and aims to increase the competences of young people in the field of media and the creation of audio content, as well as to give them a platform to talk about the topics that interest them in order to reach the right audience and become part of the regional youth civil society.

The RAISE Youth project, implemented by the Center for Development of Sustainable Communities, covers over 500 young people aged between 18 and 29, living in the municipalities of Pernik, Breznik, Trun, Radomir, Zemen and Kovachevtsi, who are not currently involved. Within its framework, various trainings for career and personal development are passed, and the most active 20 participants will be provided with additional training and mentoring assistance to start their own business.

The RAISE Youth project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
