Get some inspiration from our finalists from last year:
Joy 949’s new and improved Taste of Radio Program is a training program that nurtures approximately 70 participants yearly.
The program delivers hands-on skills in the areas of studio operation, digital editing, media law, radio presentation and interviewing. It also provides a safe and inclusive space for individuals to grow self-esteem, self-worth and make meaningful connections within the community.
The program also has a cumulative benefit on the community. Around 96% of graduates remain as volunteers of the station, creating new content and delivering new shows that help Joy 94.9 continue to connect with individuals around Victoria.
Over the past few years, the organisation has focussed on increasing the networking between Melbourne GLBTIQ sporting organisations through a strategy that includes a variety of initiatives such as the Midsumma Sports Day, Midwinta Mixer, President’s Dinner, Pride March co-ordination and the Midsumma Carnival Sports Precinct.
The increased networking between member clubs enables the sharing of information and ideas and helps clubs improve their offering to the broader community.
