30 unique stories are being amplified throughout the City of Perth and Northbridge during National Youth Week.

Expanding the reach of the traditional Speakers’ Steps, the project announces young people’s ideas, experiences and reflections when considering the National Youth Week theme, ‘Our Voice. Our Impact’.

RTRFM youth journalists interviewed an array of young people from all walks of life. We are privy to their insights into a range of contexts including mental health, culture, indigenous advocacy, education and rural communities.

Keep your ears open to hear the unique perspective of a generation whose voices are regularly heard in the virtual world, but rarely have the opportunity to infiltrate the public sphere.

Listen to a collection of the stories below or hear them out on the street.
