Description of Supplemental Outreach Intiatives Participation in Career Days. The WILL Stations joined the College of Communications at the University of Illinois in conducting a Communications Career Night at the Levis Faculty Center on the Urbana campus on February 19, 2004. (Copy of program enclosed; note that the WILL Stations were not formally listed on the program because its was not a "presenter.") Representatives of the Hispanic and African-American student associations participated in the career night in an effort to expose as many minority students as possible to employment opportunities in journalism. Sponsorship of Community Event. On an on-going basis, the WILL Stations work with faculty at University High School in Urbana, Illinois to develop an oral history curriculum to train students, including minorities, in the basics of audio production and journalism. Each year, the students produce a documentary that is broadcast on WILL Radio, and a few have chosen to major in journalism at the college level. Sponsorship of Community Event. The WILL Stations have developed a community outreach initiative, designed specifically to reach young minorities, with assistance from a member of the faculty at the University of Illinois. Dr. Will Patterson is coordinator of a weekly radio program produced by minority women of high school age. The program focuses on issues of interest to young minorities and the students learn about basic audio production and receive instruction in newswriting from WILL's professional staff. (Audio access to the most recent production is available at: www.will.uiuc.edu/community/ourjourney/default.htm; Establishment of Training Program. Station WILL-TV hires minority trainees, with little or no experience in television production, and teaches them the rudiments of camera operation and studio production. The young people involved in this program are provided with skills that can qualify them for higher level, full-time, positions in broadcasting. Listing of Upper-Level Job Openings. When such openings occur, the WILL Stations regularly list all full-time job openings in newsletters and on web sites that reach women and minorities. Examples include: Women in Communications, the Urban League, the Chicago Defender, NAB and CPB jobline (including their minority registries), National Association of Blacks in Public Broadcasting, Native American Public Telecommunications, Inc., National Asian American Telecommunications Association, and American Women in Radio and Television, Inc.
