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.

VOX Media Cafe is free to participants, however we do have limited spots. Each session can only accommodate up to 10 teen participants. We operate on a first come, first serve basis regarding our application spots. Fill out your application today if you’re interested in participating.

Important COVID-19 Note: 

VOX ATL is planning to offer sessions 1 & 2 of VOX Media Cafe in-person this summer in our downtown Atlanta office. VOX ATL has COVID-19 policies and procedures that will need to be agreed and adhered to while participating in our programming. VOX ATL does reserve the right to transition to virtual programming at any time should the safety of the participants or the staff be in question.

VMC Sessions 1 (June 6-17) & 2 (June 20-July 1) – spots available

VOX Media Cafe Sessions 1 and 2 will be returning to in-person programming this summer! Teen participants in these 2-week sessions will meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 am to 4 pm at VOX ATL’s downtown Atlanta office to hone their multimedia and journalism skills by creating a multimedia project for publication on VOXATL.org. Participants will also have the opportunity to sign up to join us at the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays for additional story coaching, interviewing, or content creation support should they choose to do so.
