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, take field trips to gather footage, visit local media organizations, create comprehensive media packages, and get to know peers from schools all over the city.
Important COVID-19 Update:
In order to guarantee the safety of both our participants and staff members, VOX will implement 3 free virtual two-week sessions. These will encompass a modified version of our in-person VMC curriculum, in place of our traditional VOX Media Cafe programming. Participation is limited and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. The application for Sessions 1 and 2 of VOX Media Cafe 2021 is available here.
VOX Media Café is open to teens 13-19, living in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties.
Over the course of each session: Teens will work to create multimedia and journalistic content, often including, but not limited to, writing, video, audio, and photography components, to be published on VOX’s website voxatl.org.
