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

Our values:

  • Opportunity: SYN creates opportunities for all young people with various lived experiences to participate in it’s community.
  • Independence: SYN produces content free from commercial and other external pressures.

  • Inclusivity: SYN works to build a culture and community for young people of all different backgrounds to participate.
  • 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.
