Youth Voices has completely lost purpose.
I love this website, and a small handful of people do too. As a new comer to the website, I began pouring economic and social beliefs into this society as a purpose to make a change. Although this change will not be big, it will mean something to the young and fresh minds reading this on their phones and laptops. I always have been convinced by my teacher's actions that it was basically a site to post assignments and projects. And as far as I am disappointed, this site is nothing but that.
Every day when I log on, I see nothing but a wave of the exact same project looming over everything, taking space of the featured section. A class must've been told by their teacher to write a project, such as an "I am" poem or an experience they had and name their title the exact same thing. And while I would like to read them, it disappoints me on how students treat this website as a place to post assignments, rather than respecting its name "youth voices" and post real political, economic and social problems and lead fascinating ways to fix it. That is way more interesting.
And it seems that staff also is being just a bit inactive. For example, the featured section is probably ran by a computer that picks out random things. I have sawn miraculous posts that have been covered up by classes posting a massive wave of assignments, taking up unnecessary room for other posts to lighten.
This is a message out to the students reading this. Take this website as a chance to make change. Make youth voices not a place to post assignments when a teacher tells you to, make decisions and communicate with each other. Each and every one of you has a great mind that is just waiting to be revealed, and you have more potential than you think you do. Post actual and interesting arguments rather than only doing it when a teacher tells you to, make change. Change the town, change the state, change the country.
Change the world.
