Voices of Youth

Voices of Youth is a series that sees youth partnered with writing, photography, and art mentors to help capture their own perspective and narrative. Young reporters' work is featured in our publication, and the paid program is made possible with. underwritten funding from various philanthropic organizations. 

In some communities, a professional journalist leads workshops providing step-by-step instruction in how to write, how to research, and how to interview sources for a story. Those communities also have mentor to work with young people as they develop their stories,photos, or artwork.    

Youth are paid for their participation in the workshops and when their stories are published.
