The 20 Point System
York College Radio is staff managed and student driven. We encourage students to take full advantage of the radio station. Students are encouraged to host their own shows or you can learn how to engineer shows. But to have a show all students must follow the 20 point system before they can host a show. The 20 point system is necessary, because it helps staff determine if the student is a good fit for the radio station. The 20 point system also gives new members of YCRadio.org an opportunity to observe and ask questions to staff or an experienced member of YCRadio.org.
The 20 point system requires future hosts to volunteer at the York College Radio station by completing a variety of different tasks. The amount of time put in towards the operations of YCRadio determines the number of points received. When a student completes his/her required 20 points they become eligible for creating their own show if they desire, and during the points process new member must sit down with the a staff member various times to start formulating ideas for your own show.
It would be helpful for the new volunteers to assist the host with preparation of the hosts shows such as gathering information, co-hosting, social-media support and other reasonable requests made by either management or the host.
Current and future members must also help with York College related events that YCRadio hosts such as Club Fairs, Student Orientation and more. The 20 Point System is waived for Faculty members.
