  • Location: Santa Rosa, CA

They are the scions of industry magnates,
the sons of Eritrean refugees,
girls celebrating their quinceneras,
daughters of fourth-generation farmers,
this is the bridge between
the Sonoma of yesterday and the
Sonoma of tomorrow

Voice of Youth is the only local enterprise dedicated to
broadcasting teen voices. Nowhere else is a local professional
media outlet pledging its airwaves to adolescents and their
authentic reflections of growing up at the dawn of the 21st century.
