Girls on Air is a radio training project for young women from the City of Yarra's culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
The Girls On Air project provided radio training, as well as support and resourcing to produce radio features for broadcast and podcast on International Women’s Day 8 March 2010. The radio features cover social and political issues affecting young women.
The Girls On Air project was funded by the City of Yarra.
