Over the course of the fall semester, two Generator Interns will train new CJSR volunteers in the basics of making radio, and lead Generator, a news program that serves as an incubator for new volunteers.

One of the interns' main tasks will be leading monthly news training, with the support of CJSR's News Coordinator.

The other task, leading Generator, will require the interns to give new volunteers a more hands-on, in-depth introduction into making a radio show.
