When you walk into the True Star Foundation’s office you might think you’re walking into just another after school program for teenagers. As you get closer, you’ll hear the teens laughing, talking amongst themselves, and may think this is pretty standard for an after school program. But True Star is no ordinary after school program, or non-profit, for Chicago youth.
In its nearly twenty years of operation, it’s become a media blueprint for the youth voice and culture of Chicago. From the blogs and print articles to its photography, True Star’s contribution as a multimedia organization gives Chicago teens hands-on media experience.
