About Us

Teens in Print is a citywide journalism program for Boston youth. Our program is student-driven program and it exists to give Boston students the tools to effectively share their experiences and perspectives through writing. We publish writing online on a rolling basis and occasionally distribute print products as well. You can read our latest student writing on this website and view our last print product, Writing through the Distance magazine, here.

We believe that journalism and creative nonfiction writing are especially effective vehicles for developing generalized writing skills, cultivating the voices of young people, and preparing students for success in college and careers after high school. We also want to provide trusted adult mentors for our students.

Typically, Teens in Print offers a weekly after-school program during the school year and a six-week Summer Journalism Institute, paid hourly through a partnership with SuccessLink. We are still figuring out our exact plans for the upcoming school year, so follow us on social media to stay in touch! We're on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Thanks for your interest in our program. We hope you enjoy the student writing here, and if you are a student yourself, feel free to reach out to us using the Contact form. We'd love to have you.
