VOX Media Cafe
VOX Media Cafe is a multimedia summer camp for Atlanta-area teens
Join us this summer for VOX Media Cafe and create media by teens, for teens! Spend some of your summer with your peers, ages 13 – 19, from all over Atlanta and raise your voice around the issues you care about, all while building skills in journalism, shooting video, editing audio content and putting it together on VOXATL.com. Work with professional mentors from media outlets around town including CNN/Turner, WABE, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and more. Experience Atlanta from a new perspective and have a great time exploring the world of media creation and journalism!
Please note: We have scholarships and sliding scale funding available – we don’t want cost to be a barrier to anyone’s participation!
We have three sessions for VOX Media Cafe:
- Session 1: June 2018 (June 4, 2018- June 15, 2018)
