Austin Has the Mic! Youth Reporters Share Community Stories

Youth reporters interview Chicago’s First Lady, Amy Eshleman, and members of the Austin Community at the Spring Forward Day of Service.

Austin Has the Mic is a youth media partnership between BUILD, Austin Coming Together and Westside Health Authority. The aim of partnership is to use digital media platforms and podcasting to reclaim the narrative of the west side, and empower youth participants and community members with a platform to tell the positive stories that larger news outlets too often neglect.
Check out the AHTM youth media team covering the Chicago Mayor’s office “Spring Forward Day of Service” event; featuring updates from incredible community partners and elected officials.
Hear participants’ thoughts on the event on this month’s episode of BUILD Radiolisten here, and be sure to follow @austinhasthemic on Instagram. Stay tuned—the youth are launching their podcast May 7th!
