Become an Insider.
Step 1: Recruit an Adviser
Ask an adviser to serve as High School Insider’s point of contact with your school or educational program. The best HS Insider adviser is typically a school teacher or a program manager at an education organization that wants to support young people in sharing their stories with the world.
Get your advisers’ name and email address and submit them with your permission slip in Step 2.
Step 2: Submit a Slip
Submit a permission slip so that Team HSI can create your WordPress account.
- Online permission slips for students under 18 can be completed here or over 18 here.
- Paper permission slips for students under 18 [English / Spanish] or over 18 [English / Spanish]. Students can take a picture and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 3: Share Your First Story
Within 3-4 business days, your permission slip will be processed and a member of Team High School Insider will send you an invitation to create your HSI account and this How-To Guide for submitting your first story.
