The School Broadcasting Network Inc – SBN – is a not-for-profit organization and global portal created to give young people a voice in producing media that matters. SBN empowers young people to communicate their ideas, innovations and commitments for sharing culture and creating equitable, just and sustainable societies via a global stage. 

SBN is very honoured to be under the mentorship of our International Patron Dr Jane Goodall, National Patron Dr Peter Ellyard and International Ambassador Erin Schrode

SBN’s youth radio programs offer content rich ‘endutainment’ – created for young people, by young people. Primary Perspectives, winner of Australia’s ‘Best New Radio Talk Program’ at the 2012 CBAA Awards has listeners of all ages on every continent and is now broadcast on over 20 time points each week via terrestrial and internet sites around the world.

SBN’s newest production SwitchOn Saturday launched to rave reviews and all of SBN’s youth programs are now live simulcast and rebroadcast across USA and the Caribbean each week via the Kidz Hub Media Network.
