CNN 10 Joins Forces with AT&T’s Youth Voices Collective
This summer, AT&T and CNN launched Youth Voices Collective, a program to support student expression and teach writing and journalism skills at a moment when young people are looking for ways to speak out.
The program provides instruction and publishing opportunities to thousands of students across the U.S., especially those in underserved communities, in collaboration with 826 National, the largest youth writing network in the country, Six Feet of Separation, an online newspaper established in San Francisco for students to chronicle their experiences during COVID-19, and VOX ATL, a longtime CNN collaborator that amplifies the voices of Atlanta youth.
As part of AT&T’s Youth Voices Collective, CNN 10 has produced special editions featuring CNN 10 anchor and writer Carl Azuz to answer student questions about journalism and news writing. Topics include: Objectivity in Journalism, Checking Sources, On-Camera Delivery, and Effective Newswriting.

What is CNN 10?
Explaining global news to a global audience: This is the mission of CNN 10, a 10-minute news show that appears as a daily digital video on CNN.com.
CNN 10 replaced CNN Student News, the network's longest-running show that first aired in 1989. CNN 10 serves an audience interested in compact on-demand news broadcasts - either on the go or in the classroom. The show's priority is to identify stories of international significance and clearly describe why they're making news, who is affected, and how the events fit into a complex, international society. The show maintains a neutral position on controversial topics. It seeks to provide multiple viewpoints, clear illustrations, and general overviews instead of graphic descriptions.
