HarlemLive is award winning, critically acclaimed web magazine produced by teens from throughout New York City. It is a journalism, technology and leadership program that teaches students ages 13 to 21 how to run an online newspaper. The publication, ''HarlemLive,'' includes news articles, investigative stories, opinion pieces, personal essays, poetry, photography and video documentaries. The students organize events, conduct workshops and sit on panels, increasing their networking and public speaking abilities. The program is located on 125th Street in Manhattan, the heart of Harlem's commercial district, just a half block from the historic Apollo Theatre.

Teenagers run every aspect of the publication and are assigned positions such as editor-in-chief, managing editor, photo editor, reporters, layout designers, administrators and technicians. Adult mentors, including journalism professionals from The New York Times, Black Entertainment Television, ABC News, VIBE magazine, Time Magazine, and Bloomberg News guide them through the process. A partnership with Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism allows HarlemLive students to work one-on-one with Masters Degree journalism candidates as well.

HarlemLive teens learn by doing: They research their own articles, interview sources, photograph news events, and interact daily with their community. Through an ongoing ''dialogue'' with Harlem, they encourage accountability in their schools, political districts and neighborhoods. In the process, they develop specific skills including desktop publishing, database management, digital camera technology, electronic messaging, web design and mass communications.
