Teen Center A new project of the Education Department

*The Due Date for Applications has been extended. Accepting Applications until November 3rd.*

WYEP is beginning a brand new project centered on youth empowerment. We have noticed that there are a lot of intelligent, passionate teens in this city with strong voices and great talent. We have been wondering though, how those voices can be better projected. We want the Pittsburgh region to hear what our youth have to say about what is important to them.

To honor that vision of the future we have begun a project which will be teen-driven. We are looking for teens who are interested in learning how to project their voices through a variety of media, including radio. But we are not interested in telling those teens what to say. We want teens who would like to develop their leadership skills - who are interested in spending time with the issues that are important to them.

The future of this project is a teen-led organization centered on media creation and advocacy.

If you or a teen you know would like to:
-acquire radio production skills
-learn more about issues which are important to them
-become a spokesperson for youth issues in the Pittsburgh region
