What We Value

Creative, Open, Diverse, Confident, Involved, Informed, Empowered

At Kidstar Radio, we foster creativity, openness and diversity by providing a safe environment for children to think and speak their opinions freely.
Kidstar participants share their opinions respectfully and without causing harm to others who might not share their views. Kidstar participants are leaders and have a responsibility to themselves, their families and their communities to always engage with others with dignity.

"Kidstar Radio Network has been an incredible community outreach program for the Orlando Predators.."

When asked what he liked best about being part of Kidstar and a member of the White House Press Pool, he thought for a moment and said "Riding on Airforce One".

José, was not just at the bottom of his class He was at the bottom of the school

When he graduated, in his valedictory address, he said that his first responder/military radio show had saved his life. .

He is a career Marine.

Lindsey was the host of "Bookworm"

She would read and comment on age appropriate books (well, she does read at an advanced level.)

She has a following in Indonesia. They wanted to practice their English. And listening to her show was part of their class.

Michael did a cooking show and is now a chef at a major resort.

He started with a cooking show interviewing waiters and waitresses, then cooks and restaurateurs.

Then he started interviewing teachers at a culinary school. By the time he graduated Highschool he knew all of the instructors at the school. It made that transition very easy.
