Amplifying youth voice across Boston.

Teens in Print (TiP) is a writing program created to amplify the marginalized voices of eighth to twelfth-grade Boston students. TiP offers an after-school program, an intensive six-week summer writing program, writing and media literacy workshops for Boston teachers and community organizations, and an online platform for student writing.

Who we are

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive writing program that encourages and celebrates the diversity of thought and identity. TiP believes that empowering students to explore, refine, and share their ideas is a prerequisite to creating young adults who do well in the world and for the world.

We strive to give students the tools to effectively share their experiences and perspectives through writing, the platform to reach decision-makers who can act on their ideas, and the knowledge to become thoughtful consumers of media.


Join TiP and share your story.

At Teens in Print (TiP), we seek to uplift young voices that are historically marginalized and often excluded in traditional media. Students who join our program will connect with peers from across Boston, learn about writing and media, and publish writing on our website: teensinprint.com.

TiP students are free to explore their own interests and passions. From op-eds and advocacy letters to listicles and photo essays, our students try out all sorts of writing and creative expression.
