What is Radio for a Cause?

Radio for a Cause's mission is empowering individuals with disabilities

John Graham, our founder, is Autistic and currently a facilitator for support groups for both adults and teenagers on the Autism spectrum. He is also the recipient of the 2011 Autism Society of Indiana's Excellence in Self Advocacy award. Radio is something he's been passionate about since high school. He attended Homestead High School, which has its own state of the art broadcasting studio where they broadcast on 91.1 FM.

After graduating from high school, he knew he wanted to have a higher purpose in life. Did you know you have to be enrolled in college to even be considered for an internship at broadcasting stations??! College is a giant responsibility, let alone for disabled individuals. That's why our main dream is to start an online radio station from scratch. But our priority and mission is to employ individuals with disabilities. 

At the moment we are only able to offer volunteer positions that would love to help out at events like school dances and fundraisers. However, once we have our digital radio station on air, we'll be looking for individuals who'd like some work experience inside and outside of our studio offices. Those areas will be in accounting, sales, social media expertise. Our business plan is to earn enough revenue through advertising and contributions that would allow us to pay our awesome employees!

Future Expansions

1. Hiring drivers to pick up and transport our clients to the studios!

2. Employing individuals with Autism and others on the spectrum that would specify radio as their "dream job."

3. Raising awareness for Autism in our community by doing live remote spots. (i.e. Autism Acceptance Walk)

​4. Exclusive podcasts on our website from individuals in our community.

5. Radio station app for smartphones so you can stream anywhere you go!

6. Visual radio broadcasting with our morning shows!
