Virtual Youth Voice Workshop – Fall 2020

Learn how to write an editorial or opinion piece during the Youth Voice Workshop! In our virtual newsroom, we empower students to use their voice to weigh in on issues impacting their community, inspired by the #360YouthVoiceChallenge. With the support of professionals, students will create a publication-ready story to submit to the #360YouthVoiceChallenge and other outlets.  The program will be held from 9:30 a.m. – noon on Saturdays, Oct. 17, 24, 31, and Nov. 7, 14. Open to high school students. Attendance for all sessions is required.

COVID-19 Information: ThreeSixty hopes to return to in-person programming when it is safe to do so. Until then, we will continue meeting virtually. Spring programming will be announced at a later date.

ThreeSixty Learning Labs

High school students: Join us for multimedia learning and exploration at St. Thomas! ThreeSixty’s year-round programming offers the chance to discover and share your voice and story, enhance your critical thinking and develop your college readiness. Whether you dream of pursuing journalism, digital media arts or strategic communication, or you’re just exploring, ThreeSixty helps prepare you for success.

Learning Labs are taught by expert journalists and communicators. A school-year entry point for new students, Learning Labs are an opportunity to learn from diverse Twin Cities communications professionals in a hands-on Learning Lab environment. You’ll hone your writing and technical skills in journalism, digital media arts and strategic communications in a hands-on learning lab environment.

ThreeSixty’s school-year News Team builds upon the multimedia skills learned in News Reporter Academy. Programming takes place on select Saturdays throughout the school year on the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul campus. 

“I continued with ThreeSixty because I love writing, and they provide more than just writing skills, or ways to be a better writer, like career opportunities, school options and mentors that help you with whatever — even just a place where you can safely talk about what is going on around the world.” – Skyler Kuczaboski, ThreeSixty alumna.

“I’m eternally grateful for ThreeSixty and all the opportunities I have received because of it.” – Maya Shelton-Davies, ThreeSixty alumna and St. Thomas ’19.
