JOY (Joyous Outreach to You/th) is All Classical Portland's project dedicated to equity and inclusivity, and is comprised of four programs.

JOY Programs:
International Children's Arts Network
Youth Roving Reporters
Artists in Residence
Where We Live



International Children’s Arts Network is a 24-hour radio service, created for children (ages 0-12). Designed for young listeners, the network features music, poems, and literature from around the world.

Youth Roving Reporters is an arts journalism mentorship program. Through this innovative, educational program All Classical Portland on-air hosts mentor selected Youth Roving Reporters, providing them with guidance and insight on what it is to be a broadcaster and arts leader in their community.

Artist In Residence is designed to foster creative and professional growth for young, emerging and established performing artists. Residents have access to All Classical Portland’s world-class facilities and studio time, on-air opportunities including appearances on Thursdays @ Three, at station events and concerts, and on special broadcasts. Residents are encouraged to pursue artistic research projects and to publish articles about their work through All Classical Portland’s platforms. In addition, each resident will be presented by All Classical Portland in recital during their residency. The residency is designed to support artists in pursuit of new projects and ideas and to take creative risks.

Where We Live is a bi-monthly radio program that shines a spotlight on a variety of organizations in our community that are providing programs in art, theater or music that explore the intersection of art and social issues. Through this series of on-air spotlights, we seek to promote equity, foster inclusion and encourage emotional literacy. Where We Live airs at 5:15pm on the first Saturday of every other month.
