Youth Advisory BoardYouth Advisory Board

KQED’s Youth Advisory Board convenes high school students from across the San Francisco Bay Area to provide feedback for KQED’s content and services and contribute their voices to our coverage.

Every other Tuesday from 4:30-6:00pm, YAB members have the opportunity to build collaboration skills, network with peers and public media professionals, and produce content for broadcast. 

COVID-19 Considerations: Out of an abundance of caution, all YAB meetings will be held virtually until we can safely transition into a hybrid model within our newly renovated building. We are committed to communicating all updates via email with a minimum of 2 weeks advance notice should any changes be made. 

Throughout the year,

YAB members can expect to....

  • Build their communication skills via pitch sessions, live event speaker opportunities and editorial meetings while learning more about KQED's different career paths. 
  • Offer feedback on different KQED programs and services including KQED's award-winning YouTube series, Above the Noise.
  • Produce their own stories and on-air segments for Youth Takeover.
