This group is for teens who want to express their opinions, ideas and advice about teen trends, teens and their parents and anything that youth are going through today. We have carefully selected you as a teen influencor. The group is secret for a reason, your answers will be given to thousands of parents, adults and companies around the world (anonymously of course)
Benefits for you:
-You can finally express your ideas and opinions to people who will listen and disseminate them on a large scale.
-You can put on your college application/resume that you worked as a teen influencor under Boost for Youth (we often give recommendations)
-Practice expressing and writing out your opinions
-Access to interesting trends before they come out
If you want to practice reaching out directly to the audience, you can apply to be a teen writer. Teen wrtiers actually write 1 to 4 articles per month on any teen trend of their choice or can pick from a bank of assigned topics. Your work can be published under your name or anonymously.
Teen advisors start by simply answering one question a week submitted on our Facebook group. They can also submit their own questions. Teen writers will often use teen advisors answers to complete articles.
This is an easy way to make your voice heard, we are very flexible on the amount of time you put into this project and how many articles you wish to write–but it will always be great exposure, awesome practice and a cool opportunity.
How to Apply:
Simply send us your name, age, location and why you want to be a Teen Writer or Teen Advisor (You can always decide to switch later) and a writing sample (like an English or History paper) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
