The Teens in Print (TiP) after-school program produces articles for the print and online TiP newspaper. TiP meets after school two days per week—Mondays at the Boston Business Journal headquarters, open to everyone, and Thursdays at the John D. O’Bryant School of Math and Science. Any teen attending a public high school in Boston can join. During reporters’ meetings, teens share ideas, snacks—and write! To learn more or join, email us.

Building Skills through Journalism

Students learn practices central to journalism—interviewing, researching, and writing—and in the process, gain essential skills for higher education and entering the modern workforce: confidence, self-discipline, and professionalism. TiP students receive targeted one-on-one training and deep mentorship in a safe, supportive environment. As students grow with the program, they are encouraged to take increasing roles of responsibility, tackle tougher stories, and move up the ladder from staff writers to editors.

Are you a Boston teen who wants to get involved, but can’t attend the after-school program? Email us to submit your writing—essays, memoirs, poetry, stories, articles and letters—to the newspaper.

Amplifying Youth Voices through Partnerships

Teens in Print partners with the Boston Business Journal, who provide meeting space and professional experience for our after-school program on Mondays. TiP also partners with 826 Boston, running our reporters’ hub at the John D. O’Bryant / 826Boston Writers’ Room on Thursdays.

Youth development organizations across the city are engaging students in conversations about social justice, identity, and what matters to them most. If you would like to partner with Teens in Print, contact us.
