Teens in Print is a platform for student journalists, essayists, poets, and artists, and it just got a new stage: the revamped bostontip.com.

Based on student and staff feedback, the newspaper’s online home was made with its teen readers in mind to better highlight student stories.

The new site features:

  • StoryMap – TiP student writers and their families come from around the world. The StoryMap collects and pinpoints stories about immigrant experiences and global issues. Expect it to start filling up!
  • Meet the Staff – Check out the Q&A with the TiPsters. Our favorite tidbit from this issue: “Best thing I ever did? Eat a whole pineapple by myself.” Hats off, Clinton Nguyen.
  • Infinite scroll – You know the feeling of endless news you get from scrolling down your Facebook or Instagram feed? That’s the effect of infinite scroll. This website is made to be read on your mobile phone — making it extra teen friendly.
  • Social Media – Teens can tweet or post their individual stories. (You can too!) Follow Teens in Print on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest articles.

More features will pop up throughout the summer, including a multimedia page and our teacher curriculum guides, which provide common-core aligned writing activities to accompany each newspaper issue.

Major thanks and kudos to AmeriCorps*VISTA member Lhanzi Giambrone and the gifted Ryan Catalani for their vision and amazing work over the past six months.

Teens in Print is the only citywide youth newspaper written by and for Boston public secondary school students. Launched in 2004 and published five times a year, Teens in Print is available in Boston high schools, libraries, community centers, and online.
