Youth Activities Program

PURPOSE: The purpose of the Youth Activities Program is to foster school aged youth interest in wireless communication technology, and encourage their future career in wireless. To pique the interest of youth, RCA's Youth Activities Program uses amateur radio as a vehicle to introduce wireless concepts.

The Youth Activities program is chaired by RCA Director Carole Perry WB2MGP and has Richard Somers, Stan Reubenstein, Gordon West, Ernie Blair, and Charles Kirmuss as committee members.

Scholarships are available for deserving youth. Applicants should complete the application linked below along with the accompanying referral also linked below.
