FPR Mission and Vision

Inspired by organizations like National Public Radio in the United States, Futures Public Radio provides an authentic community voice for all International School of Beijing middle and high school students, empowering them through literacy skills and real-world, local and global investigations.  ISB's FPR highlights the worth of investigative journalism to build seekers, critical thinkers, and problem solvers. We embrace our roles as truth seekers and engaged journalists who work to best serve our community and be a civic force.  We aim to question, inform, and unite, celebrating community, service, and high-quality, publishable storytelling and reporting. 

Sound engineering, audio and video editing, web design, and collaboration exist as twenty-first century learning goals.  Expert connections and mentorships with global and local media are sought whenever possible.

FPR member stations from other international and local school follow the same community-building and professional journalism ideals.
