About us

On one end we have a socially-concious group of mentors who study journalism at Northwestern University’s Medill school. On the other, a group of smart, motivated teens from the Gary Comer Youth Center. Amazing things happen when we come together.
We create multimedia.
We study journalism.
We laugh and have great fun!
Our teens get one-on-one guidance from some of the best journalism students in the country.
Our mentors get to be big brothers and sisters to teens that teach us a lot about life.

Our goal is to help our teens become better candidates for jobs or college admissions. They will graduate from the two year program with the skills, equipment and confidence they need to produce multimedia. Even if they decide not to study journalism in college, our teens will leave this program knowing that they can do anything they put their mind to.

This program is directed by Sarahmaria Gomez, a multimedia journalist who lives in Chicago. For more information, please contact Sarahmaria here.
