We provide internships for college-level students in several areas of our stations' operations. At all levels, we are committed to age-appropriate interactions that encourage skills to help students get job-ready, including reading, math and understanding technology and the social and academic steps in the career planning process. We also discuss social media and possible negative consequences of personal picture posting, for future school and job applications. Some station-wide events, including our Toys for Tots holiday drive, encourage young givers and teach them the importance of life-skills like volunteering and helping others. On-air, we also show 'CNYCentral Athlete' weekly, featuring high school sports stars who are also academic standouts.
