VOX Investigates is a semester-long project in which teens enrolled in VOX’s after-school program take a deep dive into different topics of critical importance to Atlanta-area youth. We use the activities of reporting, self-expression and publishing to share teens’ voices, information and resources to make change. VOX teens work with professional journalists as mentors to produce video, audio and written stories, which are published online and in print. If you would like to receive free copies of our print edition at your school or community organization, please sign up here.
We also solicit and share first-person voices of teens in partnership with community organizations. VOX brings self-expression workshops to partners’ teens, publishes information about partners’ services and resources, and includes partners in our community dialogue & showcase.
Teens who complete the VOX Investigates program will get:
- real-world journalism experience across different media platforms
- published portfolio pieces
- a new professional network of community supporters
- a written recommendation (or reference) letter
- community service hours
- financial literacy training
- project-management and community leadership training
- a monetary stipend (at the end of the project)
- High school-aged teens living in metro Atlanta
- Demonstrated interest in this project and availability to complete the requirements
- Participate as members of the VOX program, as a staff member or contributor, for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year.
- Candidates who have previous experience with VOX receive priority.
