VOX Media Cafe is a Media Camp for Teenagers in Atlanta!
VOX Media Cafe is the only program of its kind in metro-Atlanta, covering new multimedia techniques for storytelling, the fundamentals of journalism -- all with a tangible multimedia product to take home at the end. The classes are taught by a volunteer cadre of professionals.

VOX Media Cafe launched in the summer of 2011 with four weeks of experiential classes taught by top-notch Atlanta-based media and writing professionals. In 2012, VOX expanded the program to include two advanced weeks of instruction in visual storytelling and literary nonfiction, and in 2013, VOX provided a deep dive into multimedia storytelling, with a full two weeks dedicated to developing and producing an interactive media package, taught by CNN/Turner adult volunteers. In 2014, VOX expanded its offering to include two, three-weeklong sessions in multimedia storytelling, combining the fundamentals of journalism and reporting with the real-world experience of backpack video and website production.
Work produced by participants in VOX Media Cafe is also published in print editions of VOX newspaper and on the VOX blog.
