    Are Inspiring Teen Voices in the Media Important?

    Sad news, girls: L.A. Youth, a school newspaper entirely produced by teens, for teens, in the Los Angeles area, published its final issue this month due to financial troubles.

    The inspiring newspaper was published for 25 years and had an actual office, circulation system and a readership of around 400,000. Printed six times a year, the paper featured first-person accounts by young people who were writing about themselves and the world around them, including their communities, families and cultures. It had both serious stories (about undocumented immigrants, drug abuse, teen pregnancy and school budget cuts) and lighter stuff like art and cafeteria lunch reviews.

    The news of L.A. Youth’s closing got us to thinking: How many other publications exist that are entirely teen-run? How important do you think it is for teens to hear other teen voices in the media? Said one L.A. Youth contributor, “I was basically invisible in high school, but after my stories people noticed me…I’m not as shy or intimidated as I was before.” Have you ever had an experience speaking out for something you’re passionate about? Did it make you feel more confident?

    Let us know how you feel teens are represented in the media, what kind of teen voices you’d like to see in the media, and anything else in the comments below!
