Word on the Street is an online publication, designed to give youth in communities of color a voice, and an opportunity to show their gifts and talents. We need young people who are passionate about their community, to help others share their perspectives through art, and self-expression. In the process, youth will develop as leaders, display their own creativity, and work towards breaking down barriers in people’s lives.
Even if you are not an artist, if you are passionate about or want to learn about working with websites, reading and editing publications, creating art, and doing interviews, this is an opportunity for you to share your gifts, and positively impact communities of color. This is a paid internship, and youth will be expected to attend the Summer Institute (from July 18th through August 5th),and meet weekly during the school year. If you are passionate about this opportunity, please fill out and submit this application, by June 20th
