With weekly Young Hillz Takeover’s we inspire our young people to go further in media, communications and gaining confidence.
Throughout the week we work with groups and individuals, and with thanks to BBC CIN for funding this project, as without them all our hard work would not be possible.
The three key differences we offer to young people are:
We take each young person on an individual journey using the radio as a tool to gain skills and make differences within their lives.
Drop in sessions for Young Hillz are every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 3.30pm until 6pm. We are based at WATCH Community Centre, 12 Victoria Street, Hillfields, Coventry, CV1 5LZ.
We also open our doors during half terms and school holidays, this gives the local community a chance to see behind the scenes in our studio of how a radio show comes together to play live across Coventry & Warwickshire. With varying activities to get involved with including production, presenting and music editing skills.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next available dates in our latest news. For more information or if you would like to get involved then call 02476 550564.
Hillz FM is a safeguarding centre providing a safe environment to all young and vulnerable people within the centre.
“I would like to publicly thank Hillz Fm for all of the brilliant work they do in the community which was recently highlighted on my BBC Afternoon Show. On a personal note my 2 young sons took part in a workshop at Hillz Fm during February half term. This was a fantastic opportunity for my children and they thoroughly enjoyed the time they spent at Hillz Fm. Their experience has not only heightened their self esteem but also given them a newly found confidence which I feel is due to working on community projects which Hillz have developed”
“I passionately feel all of the work that Hillz Fm do in the community is invaluable and for that I cannot thank them highly enough”
