Volunteers save articles daily from local news for a two-week period (~two articles per day) on topics of interest. The articles are then read out loud at the HKSB recording studio in Kowloon at the end of this two-week period.

No media training or skills are required! Volunteers with clear voices are ideal. 

Step 1: Register to read and the coordinator will send you more details.

Step 2: Pick a 2-week period and begin collecting news stories for that priod. The coordinator will contact you to record your articles at the end of this two-week period.
