Welcome To The Generation Listen Tribe.
Generation Listen was born as Danielle Deabler's passion project. She knew public radio's future was dependent on finding the next generation of fans and supporters.

We are actively building a community of young NPR listeners who share our curiosity about the world, and our passion for creating a more informed and engaged public. Generation Listen is a conscious movement to connect NPR with younger audiences and connect those fans to one another.
It's time for us to get better at finding you where you are and what is most relevant to your lives. And when we get there, we want to hang out — whether in cyberspace, over the air, or through events — and exchange ideas and smart conversation.

WE ARE GENERATION LISTEN. We believe a great story can change your day, your life and the world. It is our connective tissue. It is our common denominator. It is a reflection of who we are, and who we want to become: critical, empathetic, educated and inspired. We want to look at the past 40 years of integrity-driven content that NPR has created and incite the next 40. We use the tools of today with the hope for tomorrow.
