Youth programme manager took the opportunity to create what has now come to be known as the "Youth Digital Corner". The show was live every Monday at 4pm-5pm. Guests were invited from various backgrounds to give advice and share their personal journeys with the young listeners. The idea behind the project was to motivate, encourage, and uplift the local young people from various backgrounds including a high proportion of the Muslim community. The programme grew from having 364 listeners to 1519. lissteners also posted comments online which were very positive making it a very sucessful and worthwhile project to be replicated in the near future.
