Do The Write Thing of DC’s 2024 Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program

2024 marks the 15th year that DTWT has been participating as an MBSYEP host site! Our mission is to provide opportunities for youth in the nation’s capital to explore and expand their own ideas and ambitions through various forms of media including book publishing/poetry, video production as well as through youth advocacy projects, like our TEEN New Deal program.

This year our MBSYEP worksite will engage youth in the following workshops over our 6-week program (June 24 – August 2):

Weeks 3 & 4 - TEEN New Deal Youth Advocacy project / Work Readiness skills
Weeks 5 & 6 - Video Production / Youth Town Hall-Party
