You won’t be financially compensated, but you will have the reward o having YOUR work published on our website and/or the print copy of our magazine!

YAB young people come from EVERYWHERE to share their voices about things that matter to them on the digital and print pages of Detroit City Youth Opportunities Magazine. They are not members of our team or staff here at DCY~Opp. They are youth who write well, have a voice and a desire to express themselves in articles, photography, art or poetry.
