Educators’ Guide

“What’s your ‘secret’ to teen engagement?” 


Visitors to VOX ATL have been asking for ideas to increase youth voice and engagement in their classrooms and after-school programs.

We have always brought self-expression workshops to students in partnership with schools and organizations, and recently we’ve been offering training for staff of youth development organizations. 

Now, we can do even more by sharing interactive, “VOXy” learning activities for use wherever teens are meeting and learning — including digital learning. 

Each VOX ATL Lesson Guide* is full of hands-on activities that use teens’ published content for exploring critical issues and developing skills aligned with Georgia’s Department of Education Standards of Excellence and Afterschool & Youth Development Quality Standards.

Our Guide was co-created by educators from GSU’s College of Education & Human Development MACIE program, using VOX ATL’s highly interactive program model and commitment to authentic youth voice. 

We invite you to use this FREE Guide with the teens you serve!

And we invite you to click here to let us know what works and what you wish for in your work! 

Thank you for being our partner as Guides on the Side with teens. 

With appreciation,  the VOX ATL Team

VOX ATL’s Educator’s Guide offers interactive (“VOXy”) lesson plans for engaging teens in hands-on learning, no matter where they are. Here, teens from JumpSpark’s Strong Women Fellowship plan and produce video on Zoom in a VOX ATL-facilitated session.
