Keiran became an #IWill Ambassador in 2017. Read his social action journey:
“I first started social action by volunteering for a community radio station Crystal FM when I was 13 years old. As I grew older I realised that there aren’t enough opportunities in the radio industry for young people. There are not many places they can go for experience, like I was able to, so I went on to set up The Youth Radio Network. We were very fortunate to have the support of O2 Think Big who awarded us funding to set up, and a big challenge for us now is to find more funding after that ends.
The Youth Radio Network is a digital place where young people can easily access and develop their skills and interests. It acts as a sounding board for youth news and issues and promotes all youth organizations. I wanted the focus of the network to be on young people, and on topical issues such as Bullying, Racism, LGBT and much more.
What’s great about The Youth Radio Network is that it’s completely digital so anyone can present for us from any location. We want to help young people get into employment and we hope that we can help open many doors for young people looking for a career in the broadcasting industries.”
