Young Voices Media Project



Each summer, the Young Voices Media Project teaches teens in the Salinas Valley the essentials of media literacy, critical thinking, journalism, writing and news reporting. Students pitch story ideas, conduct interviews, develop sources and write/produce their own news stories while they develop the confidence and skills for civic involvement. Young Voices is a project of Voices of Monterey Bay, a non-profit news magazine that publishes local stories for Monterey and Santa Cruz counties in California’s Central Coast.
