YOUTH VOICES ON THE WEB. It’s not often that you read or hear Latino youth voices in mainstream media. Two different projects, in El Paso, Texas, and Chicago, IL, empower Latino teens to write their own stories and put them on the web. In El Paso, Latinitas is the first digital magazine made for and by Latina youth. In Chicago, a group of Latino immigrant youth are creating theater productions and radionovelas that they upload to the internet to help their communities make better health decisions.
