Teen Voices need your help. Because of a recent decrease in funding, they’re at a crisis. The organization must raise $300,000 by August 1. Yes, it’s that bad.
For nearly 25 years, girls and young women in Boston and beyond have counted on Teen Voices to provide a positive, girl-friendly space to grow as writers and leaders. Teen Voices is not going down without a fight.
Their girl-generated magazine is the only publication of its kind. Thousands of girls around the globe count on Teen Voices to publish their work and offer honest, positive stories that address real issues in their lives.
The good news is their magazine and our afterschool program are stronger than ever. They’ve produced two excellent issues in the past year and over 225 online articles—including interviews with inspiring girls in action and powerful leading ladies like Donna Brazile, Jennifer Buffett, and Maria Hinojosa. And let’s not forget to mention the waiting list for their afterschool and summer journalism program. Their Boston-based teens consistently show growth in perseverance, social efficacy, and acceptance of others.
With a strong and dedicated staff and an army of passionate teens and volunteers, they are poised to take Teen Voices to the next level in 2013, reaching many more girls worldwide. With a vision to increase our web traffic tenfold—they hope to become the go-to place for smart girl media. Teen Voices has plans—and even a grant!—to make teenvoices.com an interactive, smartphone-friendly forum for girls to amplify their voices.
It’s all within reach.
But right now, they need funds to get around this challenging corner and move their organization to a stronger future. With your help, Teen Voices can partner and transform to amplify the voices of girls. Whether you can afford $5, $50 or $5,000, every donation brings Teen Voices closer.
