Purpose and Values

Purpose and Values

SYN is a media organisation run by a community of young people that provides training and broadcast opportunities for young Australians.

Our values:

  • Access: SYN provides open access for all young people to participate in its community.
  • Independence: SYN produces content free from commercial and other external pressures.
  • Participation: SYN supports young people to take charge of media creation, training and governance.
  • Diversity: SYN actively encourages a range of youth perspectives, cultures and ideas.
  • Innovation: SYN celebrates quality, and supports creativity and flexibility in its programming and operations.

SYN offers young people aged 12-25 the skills and platforms to be creators, not just consumers, of media.
SYN Radio broadcasts on 90.7 FM in Melbourne, on digital radio and
 streams live right here.
Our television programs screen on
 Channel 31 Melbourne & Geelong.
