My name is Jeremy Cimino. Like you, I am a socially conscious high school student. In addition, I am an alum of the Teen Think Tank Project. In an attempt to showcase the great work that exceptional teen change agents like you are doing, I have begun to create some content for the TTTP. So, I wanted to reach out and see if you (or anyone you know) is interested in some content opportunities.
One of the things we’re starting is a series called Students Take on Social Justice. As part of this series, we are inviting you to talk about the social justice issues that you are passionate about, discuss how meaningful reform is being hindered and describe what we can do to facilitate change. These short, self-recorded 1-minute videos are a great way to showcase your passion and get your own personal message out to the world.
In addition, I’m also producing a microcast, short-form conversation-style interview podcast episodes featuring students and their experience as teen change agents. These 5-10 minute (virtual) conversations will help students like you showcase the work you’ve been doing (inside and outside of our program) to make the world a better place.
Finally, I will be producing and editing a series of student spotlights. These short documentary-style videos highlight the great work you are doing in your community. So, if you are working on something (anything at all) that you are proud of or you want to discuss something that is important in your life, or you just want to introduce yourself to the world….let me know, and we can discuss.
I hope you find these opportunities to be a great way to not only help promote yourself, create content, and bolster your academic/personal portfolio, but also help promote the great community we have here at the Teen Think Tank Project.
If you are interested in learning more, please complete the Student Content Creator Form, and I will get back to you shortly with more information.
