Web Site Engages Youth, Spurs Community Action

"YouthNoise, a Web site initially launched in 2001, re-launched last month with the aim of encouraging youth dialogue on important social issues. The revised site, featuring content created exclusively by young people, lets users submit articles they’ve written, post to message boards on various topics, and participate in debates. Site users (who range in age from 16 to 22) discuss issues relating to politics, health, education, and more. Some young people use the site as a forum to share strategies for taking action in their local communities." It's especially interesting to the YouthLearn team to see this development, as we partnered with YouthNoise to conduct the AT&T Young Leaders Program a few years ago. "One young man in New York, after organizing a successful blood drive at his school, posted how-to information about the event to the site so that other youth could replicate the event themselves."
