Teens (13-18)

Apply to the Incubator

Students working at near-professional level in writing or visual arts gain challenging and diverse opportunities to grow artistically, professionally, and personally. Youth showcase their talents and exercise their entrepreneurial get-up-and-go by producing magazines and special projects — and we pay them for their work. Admission is competitive.

Journalism

Our wordsmiths weave smart ideas, deep research, compelling storytelling, and impeccable writing into engaging stories for their peers.

Visual Storytelling

Whether our artists express a story as an illustration, video, animation, photo essay, comics strip, or mobile game, this team brings our stories to life and makes our content pop.

STE(A)M Learning

Storytellers, STEM students, and makers collaborate across disciplines to invent novel storytelling formats that meet the needs, interests, and capabilities of young audiences.

Entrepreneurship

Students grapple with traditional news companies’ needs for strategic innovation in areas of content development, audience engagement, and advertising.

Benefits

• Individualized and group instruction from industry veterans.

• Opportunity to produce a robust portfolio of published work.

• Work with a global team of likeminded peers.

What To Expect

The level of time students spend on iGeneration Youth activities depends on their individual goals. As a general rule, we suggest allocating a minimum of six to 10 hours per week to be successful.

Students also rotate between five business teams: advertising, communications, marketing, recruiting, and social media.

Minimum Weekly Commitment

• Three 1-hour incubator meetings

• Three 1-hour business team meetings

• One lecture in student’s area of interest
