WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE WAVE’S UPCOMING FALL 2017 CYCLE, WHICH WILL BEGIN ON SEPTEMBER 4TH


FALL APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY AUGUST 18TH, AND PLEASE NOTE EARLY APPLICATIONS RECEIVE PRIORITY

Join us and become a member of Sunset Media Wave! Together, we will add new voices to a multi-platform/multimedia website dedicated to San Francisco teenagers. You bring something you’re passionate about, and we’ll help you turn it into a column. (Columns can be visual, musical, written, or otherwise.) You come three afternoons per week for seven weeks. We offer up a great space, technology, friends, web savvy adults, and expertise. It’s time for teens to voice themselves, shake things up, change the world, and change the web!
