Helping Teens Read, Write, and Succeed

Youth Communication creates short, nonfiction stories that appeal to hard-to-reach teens. Teachers and other adults use the stories and related lessons to help students improve their reading and writing skills, and improve the social and emotional skills that support school success.

Learn about our work—our mission, writing program, awards and more—and how our stories can help teens in your classes and programs by clicking on the links in the column to the left under "Who We Are."
