Democracy & Me

An educational outreach program of WVXU/Cincinnati Public Radio, Democracy & Me empowers students, supports teachers, and builds the citizens of tomorrow. We have a student podcast called Democracy & Z, in collaboration with Elementz; a blog with relevant, culturally responsive learning resources around political issues, American history, media literacy, social activism, equality and justice; a YouTube channel featuring our Democracy 101 video series for younger students; a monthly Freedom Friends Book Club exploring revolutionary reads by diverse authors, for youth and adults; a Student Voices Competition each spring, with cash prizes for essays, artwork and other creative expressions around an annual theme; paid high school/college student internships and other pre-professional connections to the WVXU newsroom, bringing more young voices to our local programs like Cincinnati Edition, and more. Sponsored by the Charles H. Dater Foundation, and supported by WVXU listeners.
