Youth TakeoverYouth Takeover

Teens have a lot to say about our constantly changing world. Throughout the school year, our team works with select Bay Area high schools to help students produce stories reflecting their experiences and those of their communities. Each spring, we feature their stories on KQED News, The California Report, Forum, Science, The Bay, KQED Newsroom, Bay Curious, and other programs during Youth Takeover Week.

The broadcast of this year's Youth Takeover will run from April 26 to April 30. Below you'll find student-produced content from this year's participating classrooms, as well as featured stories from previous Youth Takeover cohorts.
