Helping Staff Engage Teens in Social and Emotional Learning

Activities

If you're a young person in foster care and you like the idea of writing stories that will help your peers, Represent may be the place for you.

Represent writers get published online and in a print magazine that's distributed nationally. The magazine gives young people in care a place to speak out about their experiences and tell their stories. The writers also learn how to be reporters. They conduct interviews and write news stories about things that are important to youth in care.

SCHOOL-YEAR PROGRAM
If you are interested in writing for Represent during the school year, you live in the New York City area, and you're between the ages of 14 and 21, please contact us for more information or apply.
