Youth Rising Podcast by NCS

  • Ayumi Konno

Youth Rising is a podcast for young people, made by young people. I recruited 22 young people aged 16-19 from around the country who had a passion for social change and the skills to start a youth-led podcasting team. The team is led by these young researchers, reporters, editors and hosts who produce the podcast themselves with support from the Somethin' Else team. To kick off the project I co-designed and delivered a weekend of team bonding and training around production skills. After this the team started their remote working tasks, with weekly production calls from the Somethin' Else producers and regular check ins from myself to keep them on task, provide pastoral care and set goals to achieve.
