Group Interactive, Inc., an experiential and progressive youth workforce development and youth entrepreneurship curriculum design company, announced today that it will launch a new online radio program on September 24, 2009 called Renegade Teens. The show will be hosted by Patricio Quezada, 18, Founder of Hispanics Learn, a bilingual technology training and consulting company for the Hispanic community.
“Our Renegade CEO’s program is about encouraging and empowering teens to claim and own their space in the universe. More and more we are discovering that ‘owning a business’ is not attached to them. It is really about their personal journey and being recognized as a pioneer in whatever they do,” said Shonika Proctor, Founder of Group Interactive, Inc. “There are too many mixed messages out there about teens and their role and place in society. All too often adults speak about teens and their impact on society in Future Tense when they need to be speaking in Present Perfect Tense. The reality is they have already hit several milestones emotionally, socially, economically and philanthropically. This is exactly what the radio program aims to bring to the forefront of public awareness.”
Host of Renegade Teens Radio, Patricio Quezada, 18, will chat with and about teens who ‘Live It’ vs. ‘Learn It’. The show will explore the dynamic and uncensored lives of determined teens in the U.S. and abroad that are beating the odds in life, school and business, regardless of their current life circumstances. Featured guests will include teen entrepreneurs and visionaries and adults/community leaders who proudly support young people. The show will naturally be Rated R…for Renegade. Teen Discretion is advised. The show was inspired by Wendy Franklin Muhammad of The Authentic You Online.
