The Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program (AZYEP) believes youth have an important voice and the community deserves a chance to listen. We partner with KDNK Carbondale Community Access Radio to offer opportunities in community broadcasting through four programs: weekly youth live music programs, youth news, classroom projects and peer mentoring.

Our mission is to empower youth from diverse backgrounds to express themselves, build self-confidence, and develop leadership skills through community broadcasting. AZYEP provides an inclusive, safe space for students to use their voice.
