Become a Source for Teen Reporters

Offer your industry expertise to our budding young journalists. By adding your contact information to our source list, you’ll serve as a valuable resource for young reporters.

When a student reaches out to you for a quote, interview, or for background information in your area of expertise and you agree, your name and organization will be published as an authority for readership across the city!

Support Our Amplify Campaign

WriteBoston has regretfully cancelled the Pros&Conversation in-person event for 2020, pivoting to an Amplify campaign that showcases student perspective pieces on how COVID-19 has impacted their lives. We encourage you to follow the student writing and consider making a contribution that will enable us to continue providing programming for students and teachers. We know that our community will stand with us, and with our students, from wherever they are. Thank you for helping us amplify youth voices.

Send a "Keep it Up" Token to a Teen Writer

Cheer on student journalists in our Teens in Print program by sending a “way to go” token from our Amazon wish list. Goodies reward and motivate our teen writers to take the small steps–like coming to after-school programming every week for a month, or completing their first piece of writing. These incremental achievements are key to big successes later on.

We’ve compiled an Amazon wish list of trinkets for young writers in our journalism program. Shop the list–or share with coworkers and friends–to send a teen their monthly dose of motivation.

Rising Voices Awards

The Rising Voices Awards are presented with each new issue of Teens in Print, a citywide teen newspaper published quarterly. Three students receive a $100 cash prize along with a framed copy of their award-winning article.

Help inspire the next generation of youth leaders.

As a reader for the Rising Voices Awards, you’ll celebrate excellent youth writing–while engaging in meaningful volunteering. Partners form a volunteer reading team and participate in a facilitated reading and discussion to select the award winners, and present students with their awards at a teen publication event.

To learn more, please contact Anne Shackleford, Director of Development & Communications.

Writers at Work

Writers at Work is a corporate volunteer and career exploration initiative of the Teens in Print Summer Journalism Institute.

As a host organization, your company will invite 5 to 10 high schoolers to your offices for a job exploration experience. With assistance from WriteBoston, you will plan activities that showcase your company’s mission and product or service. In the process, your employees will have the opportunity to share what they are passionate about with Boston’s young leaders.

Host our teens and get to know the newest cohort of writers at work.
