This week’s Spirit of Youth program features a story about seven teenagers working with Fairbanks Youth for Habitat. Spirit of Youth is dedicated to creating, promoting and recognizing youth involvement in communities across Alaska. The stories that come from these youth are developed and broadcast on Alaska Public Radio in the hope to address negative stereotypes of teens and improve adult awareness of how teens contribute to their communities. Listen on Sundays at 9:38 am on KUAC FM, KUAC online, KUAC HD, and KUAC TV 9.5.
