Curie Youth Radio

Curie Youth Radio is a writing and radio production class led by Sarah Levine at Curie High School on Chicago's southwest side. Like many youth producers, Curie Youth Radio students are simultaneously working to create fresh and revealing stories while trying to figure out just exactly what "fresh" and "revealing" mean. You can hear their work on NPR, Chicago Public Radio, and other local stations around the U.S.
