Broadcasting every Sunday from 9-10am, Generation HOPE is a radio program that aspires to assist in nurturing growing minds with the innate multiple intelligence and emotional quotient (gratitude, empathy, respect, generosity and resilience among others) through sound interaction and audio production. It serves as a platform for youngsters to showcase their talents and inherent aptitude as well as articulate their views and insights as a youth. It aims to be an enjoyable, educational and resource radio program accessible to school aged children and your adults. It is a program that is fun in terms of music and topic selections. The program is educational as discussions therein are relative and relevant to growing youngsters. Generation HOPE can also be a resource program having consultations with parents, experienced/ trained educators/ professionals and specialists.
The program is being presented by Ms Jinky Marsh (www.jinkymarsh.com) who herself was nurtured at a young age. Ms Marsh is joined in by a local Youth co-presenter each month. This allows selected co-presenters to gain invaluable experience on radio broadcasting and presenting. Out first Youth co-presenter is Year 9 student Jackson Attwood. He plays hockey and has interests in music, photography, computers and cars. His favourite subject at school is photography and digital media. He is in the middle of completing his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. Jackson was interested in joining GenHOPE as a co-host as he enjoys helping in the community. He also volunteers for the Cancer Council on the organising committee for the local Hornsby Relay for Life.
Generation HOPE is also on a look out for one or two other local adults to share the task of co-presenting the program. If you have experience in community engagement (wish to learn the essence of volunteerism), willing to work with a dedicated team of volunteers working towards the vision of Generation HOPE and wish to gain knowledge on radio broadcasting, please contact Generation HOPE on Triple H 100.1FM. We would like to hear from you.
