Teens Teach 2021

Take 5 Teens Teach

Take 5 is an annual event where adults get the chance to learn from teens! That's right, teens, it's YOUR turn to be the teacher!

Here's how it works!

  • Shoot a video of yourself teaching us something, like painting a picture, reading a poem, sharing a story or experience, making a tik tok video, playing Fortnite, or anything else that you that you think is important for adults who work with teens to know.
  • Adults in the Take 5 program will watch the videos, select their favorites, and invite those teens to participate in a LIVE online panel discussion on Zoom on Friday, May 7th at 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. so they can ask the teen panelist questions.
  • If you are selected as a panelist, you will be eligible for a $50 honorarium prize and will have the opportunity to have your voice heard at Take 5.

Application to and participation in Take 5 is FREE of charge! To apply, create a video 10 minutes or less in length on the topic you'd like to teach us about and submit it by uploading it to YouTube (can be unlisted if so desired).
