VoiceWaves equips young people with news media and storytelling skills to uplift their stories and the stories of their communities. It amplifies youth voice through media partnerships and encourages civic engagement through community health reporting.
VoiceWaves has existed since 2011 and produces annual print publications, produces youth-led news content for the web on a weekly basis, runs a Twitter, Facebook and Instagram account with relevant youth content and produces multimedia content year round.
VoiceWaves Youth Reporters’ stories continue to be featured in The Long Beach Post, KQED, KCET & more.
VoiceWaves is open to Long Beach youth between the ages of 15 to 25, regardless of your experience level with media. To join, contact Carlos Omar at [email protected] or fill out this Google Form: tinyurl.com/joinvwlb
