Avenida Latina is written, designed and produced by young Latin Americans, aged 13 to 25, from across Toronto. Our goal is to engage readers with articles that deal with everyday life. From sharing school experiences to discussing social issues to providing health and career tips, we are here for you.
We cannot express how thrilling it is to be part of a magazine that is produced for youth, by youth. The launching of Avenida is a proud moment for us because the people who contribute to this magazine have gone through a showcase of training workshops in order to bring you the most newsworthy, hard hitting, youth journalism in Canada.
The staff would like to thank those who led our media trainings and writing workshops, including Cynthia Munster, Dalila Rubin, Gerardo Betancourt, Simon Black, Sofía Grande and Yoandra Martínez. From teaching us on how to deliver constructive articles to the design and photography of the magazine, we learned essential tools that will be benefit us outside the realm of the magazine.
If you are between the ages of 13 and 25 and would like to volunteer with Avenida Magazine, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We’ve all learned so much from one another. It has been a great learning experience. Let’s embark on this journey together!
