Community Voices is all about getting local voices on the air. We help local people record essays, poems and commentaries. We work with public school teachers who want to bring radio into their classrooms. We collect oral histories. In the spring of 2011 we launched a training program to teach listeners how to produce radio stories. We’ve trained over 50 people so far.
