My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for SLB Radio Productions, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA
SLB has been a great experience in my young professional career. As a segment of The Heinz Endowments Summer Youth Philanthropy internship program, I had the fortune of working with Larry and the gang at SLB two summers in a row. At their studio, I learned the importance of creating unbiased, balanced radio pieces, and what exactly that process entails. I learned the skills of editing, interviewing, and critical thinking; skills that are often taken for granted as a millennial, but crucial to learn. I was able to experience just how cool radio is, something that I formerly saw as a dying art. I built a sense of awareness, and an urge to learn more about of the voices in Pittsburgh in the process of researching for each radio piece. My experiences at SLB have also indirectly better prepared me for college by strengthening my group work skills, ability to talk with strangers, and general media editing skills. I cannot speak more highly about this nonprofit, and truly recommend everyone, adults and children alike, to become involved with radio via SLB.
