Federal Website Seeks Youth Voices

Foster care roundtable discussion group at the US Department of Education.

Youth.gov seeks submissions from young people on topics they’re concerned about, such as dating violence, youth homelessness, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, bullying, education and careers. Youth can write short pieces of 300 words or less or submit a short video clip. Accepted pieces will appear on youth.gov as part of a new series called Youth Voices.

youth.gov is a project of the federal government’s Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs. The website offers tools to help youth-serving organizations and community partnerships put in place effective programs for youth.

Send Youth Voices submissions to requests@ncfy.com, and we’ll pass them along to Youth.gov.
