That Could Be Your Sister Design Challenge

That Could Be Your Sister Design Challenge

“That Could Be Your Sister” was created by Radio Rookie Temitayo Fagbenle, who has reported extensively on the problem of sexual cyberbullying (http://www.wnyc.org/shows/rookies/articles/radio-rookies/2012/dec/28/sex...).  After her first radio story aired, Temitayo and Radio Rookies created a Facebook page and Twitter handle to educate and spread positive activism around the issue.  Now, as part of the Project:Connect Summer Youth Programming, Radio Rookies and Global Kids will host a “That Could Be Your Sister Design Challenge” for 50 NYC teenagers to take the movement one step further to envision a digital tool that would allow for better reporting and awareness of sexual cyberbullying and provide resources and support for victims.  Teens will spend a day working in teams to seek solutions for a problem that leaves many girls feeling isolated and alone.
