Do you believe in what we do at SLB? Whether it’s our weekly broadcasts, dedication to amplifying children’s voices, encouragement of independent musicians & artists, oral history projects, youth media advocacy, or innovative school programs–we’re glad we have a shared passion. If you’ve ever considered making a donation to SLB to support our on-air and off-air programming, May 6th is the perfect day to do so! On Tuesday, May 6th, from 6 a.m. until 12 a.m., every donation of $25 or more made at PittsburghGives.org will be matched from a pool of $750,000 from The Pittsburgh Foundation. Thank you so much for considering SLB! The 2014 Day of Giving is part of Give Local America, a national day for community foundations across the country.
You are invited to join students from Barack Obama Academy for International Studies, Pittsburgh Brashear HS and Wilkinsburg HS as they share their advocacy campaigns aimed at change in their schools and communities during a poster & workshop session. Community leaders, the media, educators, youth, parents and the public are invited to listen to youth-produced advocacy campaigns, talk with youth about their perspectives, share feedback and meet YMAP participants and partners. A collaboration between SLB Radio, Carlow University and the Consortium for Public Education, YMAP empowers teens to express their own voices and advocate for change through media advocacy.
Looking for a Mother’s Day card with a handmade touch? Skip the Big Box stores and malls, and head to SLB Radio to create a one-of-a-kind card that features your own voice and artwork. We’ll be open from April 26th to May 11th, 1 to 4 pm daily. During your visit, SLB will conduct personal interviews about the person the card is for and create a professionally-mastered CD kids can decorate, affix to a special card, and bring home that day as a gift that will be cherished for a lifetime. Purchase of a CD Card Kit is required with proceeds benefiting SLB programs for youth and families. No appointment is necessary.
Attention Businesses: Several opportunities remain to underwrite this year’s cardmaking activities with your support acknowledged on-air, on Card Kits and online. Contact Jennifer Baron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412.586.6300 x3 for details.
