Teen Voices Rising

Giving Girls a Platform to Be Heard

Teen VoicesTeen girls have a lot to say. WriteBoston's all-girls program acts as a platform for girls to voice their views on the social justice and women's issues that matter to them.

Launched in fall 2013, Teen Voices Rising mentors girls, teaching them writing and debate skills as they confront today's big problems for women and girls: from catcalls and body image to the choice to the wear hijab and the under- and misrepresentation of women of color in the media. At Teen Voices Rising, girls have the power: they choose the topics, and we help them compose new ways to address the issues that affect them in their neighborhoods and communities.

Teen Voices Rising meets Mondays from 3:30 – 5:30 pm at The Boston Globe. Free food and community service hours are provided.

Teen Voices Rising is proud to continue—and build on—the legacy of Teen Voices, the 25-year-old magazine and youth program for Boston girls. The program is a partnership between WriteBoston and Women's eNews, an award-winning nonprofit news service that covers issues of particular concern to women and provides women's perspectives on public policy.
