LATINITAS YOUTH EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD
LatinitasMagazine.org is the first digital magazine for U.S. Latina youth and serves as a forum of self-expression among Hispanic youth across the country. Latinitas offers several writing opportunities for Latinas passionate about writing. Our Youth Editorial Advisory Board is an integral part of our Editorial familia.
About the Youth Editorial Advisory Board
The Latinitas Youth Editorial Advisory Board (YEAB) is a group of young writers ages 13-23 who assist with writing articles for our magazine. The YEAB program strives to enhance writing skills on different platforms. These chicas will focus on expanding an area of the magazine with their expertise by writing about issues THEY are passionate about, no boring assignments from us. Applicants also participate in our online social networking community (www.MyLatinitas.com) by blogging and using several of the interactive features on the site. YOUR voice will contribute to the voice of LATISM in the blogosphere.
Apply Today! We’re accepting applications for the Spring term (Deadline: February 5th, 2013).

PR, Marketing, and Social Media opportunities are available for participants interested in enhancing their involvement with the program.
