What Is Expected Of You?
The 20 Point System
Students are encouraged to host their own shows or you can learn how to engineer shows. However, before you can host a show, all interested students must follow the 20 point system. 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 York College Radio an opportunity to observe and ask questions to staff or an experienced member of YCRadio.org.
The 20 point system requires future members to volunteer at York College Radio Station by completing a variety of different tasks, building points. 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. During the points process, a new member must sit down with 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 the 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, but not mandatory.
Current and future members must also help with York College related events that YCRadio partners with such as Club Fairs, Student Orientation and more. The 20 Point System is waived for Faculty members.
Please see our Station Structure section for more information on each specific department's responsibilities.
