DEBUTING TONIGHT it's a new radio reporting series from the producers of Kids These Days!
Series co-producers Jessica Cochran and Sarah Gonzales will bring the APRN audience of member stations at least 12 stories about what it's like to be young and living in rural Alaska. From education to healthcare, family life to hopes for the future - we're learning about young people in Alaska's small towns - birth to college-age - and exploring their everyday triumphs and challenges.
We are bringing you stories from Kake in Southeast, Barrow in the far North, as well as the tiny village of St. Mary's, Bethel, Dillingham and more locations throughout the state still to be announced. We are working in cooperation with local reporters from all over Alaska to produce stories that will paint a picture of what it's like to be young and living in Alaska's small communities.
Airing Mondays on Alaska News Nightly at 5pm or 6pm depending on your location. Go here to find your APRN station & schedule, then join us next Monday, October 8 for our first story when we explore why children learning indigenous language is so important to culture and community.
This series is supported by funds from the Association of Alaska School Boards' Initiative for Community Engagement program.
