What really matters most in the world? How will we help inspire the next generation of truth-seekers and truth-tellers? At the Cortes Island Academy we believe in the passion and skills of the people and wild places of this place and are proud of our youth who learned along side our community and shared their growing skills through journalistic podcasts, Elder Documentaries, Field Guides and unsung hero posters.

This week on Folk U Radio CKTZ 89.5 FM (1 p.m. Fridays, repeats on youth journalists interview neighbours and regional experts on the issues of the day in our communities in their Audio Series called Desolation Sounds.
