What is VOX Media Café?

The only program of its kind in metro Atlanta, VOX Media Café offers a unique hands-on-opportunity for teens to explore multimedia techniques for storytelling. Teens also learn about the fundamentals of journalism and how to create a tangible multimedia product. The sessions are led by a talented group of media professionals from across Atlanta. They embrace VOX’s teen-driven philosophy and support teen participants in pursuing stories and creating pieces that interest them. Through this safe and experiential-learning opportunity, teens will network with media experts; create original, comprehensive media packages; and get to know peers from schools all over the region.
