Are you a writer between 12-18?
We’re looking for youth contributors!

July 29, 2020

Are you a young writer in Colorado, age 12-18, interested in making a difference? 

Apply here to collaborate with us!

SE2, a Denver-based communications firm, is looking to collaborate with Colorado youth to work on a new advertising campaign — called Forward Together — that will help other young people across Colorado learn how to create and grow better relationships with their peers, friends, parents or other adults. 

We’re looking for ten youth contributors to join our team. 

As a youth contributor, you will be asked to write stories that will be used in the Forward Together campaign. Your work will build on the work of dozens of other young people who have participated in the development of this campaign over the past year.

The details 

As a youth contributor, you will participate in a monthly brainstorm session, create stories that we will publish on the campaign’s social media channels and the website. You will also be asked to provide input on other materials that we are making for the campaign.

Contributors will work with SE2 through June 30, 2021. 

You will only be required to spend about 2-3 hours per month creating content. For each piece of content you create that is used in the campaign, SE2 will pay you $50! You will also have other chances to get paid to share your input. 

About you 

We are seeking youth with diverse life experiences and perspectives — who understand how hard it can be to make new friends or find your people; who desire and understand the power of connection and are passionate about supporting other youth; who want to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone. 

If you have a strong interest in writing or you want to give it a try, we encourage you to apply.

Please fill out the questions below so we can learn more about you and ensure we’re representing the voices and stories of Colorado youth from a variety of backgrounds. We’ll review responses as they’re received until Wednesday, August 19 and, if you’re a great fit for the campaign, we’ll let you know.
