Writing Fellows Program
The Partnership for Male Youth is pleased to announce the launch of its Young Male Mental Health Writing Fellows Program. Under a competitive system, selected Fellows ages 18-26 will create a collection of stories, drawing on personal experiences, news and culture that will amplify their voices and perspectives on young adult male mental health. The collection will be posted online on an interactive text and video platform, designed to encourage other young males to respond to the stories.
