Sisters Helping Other Unheard Teens (SHOUT!)/ Poetically Speaking

Offered three times per year, SHOUT! creates an opportunity for teen editors to write, research, and edit submissions under the guidance of college-level mentors. School year cycles last 11 to 12 weeks and teen editors are paid $110 per month stipends. On Fridays, the girls attend workshops led by experts on sexual health, domestic violence, substance abuse, career exposure, college preparation, and others. During the summer, girls work25 hours a week for 6 weeks and are paid minimum wage through grants provided by summer funders. Teen editors complete at least 210 hours per session of workshops that train them to be journalists, update their technological skills, and allow them to discuss personal and social issues.

Five former teen editors increase their leadership skills by facilitating workshops, planning events, designing curricula, and presenting at conferences, community events, and to the media. They are paid minimum wage for their work which also includes assisting the teen editors and helping with administrative task of SHOUT!

 

Teen editors produce a print and online magazine that receives hundreds of submissions of original poetry, memoir, essays, reviews, art and opinions annually from teens around the world.  The teen editors work on the submissions and prepare them as features for the different sections of the magazine, which includes Media Watch, Arts & Culture, Small World, Food Corner, Girl Talk, Dear D., Good Reading, and Say What ? the print edition of Teen Voices is published biannually while the online version is published monthly.
