Youth Media Institute Creates Teen Site “Rain City Voices”

The RecTech teens at the Delridge Community Center’s YMI program spent fall quarter creating a blog/website based along similar lines as the West Seattle Blog, a local blog news site that serves as a local network for news, and the West Seattle Herald, a print and electronic newspaper. The main difference is that our Rain City Voices blog was created by and for local teens! Teen interns selected the blog title, decided what areas they wanted to focus on, and each intern took on the task of serving as the editor for one of the blog topics. The teens each created a byline, wrote articles and film reviews, interviewed people, posted photos to the site, and created videos. We are still uploading content and will continue to work on Rain City Voices throughout future internships. A link will be added to the RecTech Reach website to the RainCityVoices website and we will be making cross-posts periodically between our two sites.
We hope you will visit Rain City Voices and look at the work teens accomplished fall quarter 2012.
