Giving students a voice.
The Voices of Youth program provides paid journalism opportunities to area youth. The goal? To lift up youth perspectives. Youth choose topics that are important to them–gun violence, mental health, racism–and work with journalists, editors, and mentors to refine their own articles, poems, posts, and more.
Along the way, youth gain professional experience, connect with community leaders, and share their experiences, concerns, and ideas with the community to educate and inspire change.
