Voices of Youth


Voices of Youth (VOY) is an Internet site created by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for young people who want to know more, do more and say more about the world. It’s about linking children and adolescents in different countries to explore, speak out and take action on global issues that are important to them and to creating a world fit for children.

In 2006, Voices of Youth and ICDB launched Media Magic, a section of the VOY website devoted to youth-made media and youth media projects.  If you’re interested in working with youth media, Media Magic is a great gathering place for featured stories, media digests, online discussions with kids and searchable databases.  VOY Media Magic can also help identify youth-media groups in your area for you to collaborate with.
