Meet VOX's Founder & Publishing Director, Rachel Alterman Wallack

Rachel’s experience growing up in Atlanta and then writing for Junior Scholastic and Business Atlanta magazines inspired her to help start VOX Teen Communications with a team of volunteer teenagers and adults in 1993. After serving as executive director for VOX’s first two decades, Rachel now serves as a consultant to VOX, advancing the mission and impact through planning, service and partnerships. Rachel’s experience in program design and evaluation, community partnerships and strategic planning strengthens VOX’s service to more teens and adults who care for them. With a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Texas/Austin and a master’s in social work from the University of Georgia, Rachel works to advance VOX’s mission as well as our influence in the field of youth development. She has volunteered for and consults with several Atlanta-area nonprofits, including VOX, in the areas of youth development, organizational leadership and nonprofit organizational development. She has served on the Boards of the Atlanta Women’s Foundation and the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, and on the Advisory Board of Kate’s Club.

In her current role at VOX as publishing director, Rachel fuels our VOX Investigates programming, managing the team of teens and mentors. She draws on her ample youth-development expertise and journalism skills to see each publication come together through the support of an incredible team of teen journalists. Rachel also coordinates all of the publishing on VOXATL.com, offering support to our teen editors as they discover new ways to cover our community through a culture of inquiry and capture.
