Improve Teens’ Academic Performance With Engaging Content

Youth Communication helps marginalized youth develop their full potential through reading and writing, so that they can succeed in school and at work and contribute to their communities.
Youth Communication stories are carefully selected and written to appeal to reluctant and emerging readers as young as 7th grade. But they also address sophisticated and complex themes in ways that make them suitable reading selections and writing models for high school and community college students. The stories provide models of writing and behavior that encourage success in school and life. (Many of the stories align with the three writing capacities featured in the Common Core Standards: writing to persuade, to explain, and to convey real experience.)

The anthologies address a wide range of topics—immigration, identity, sex and relationships, gangs, school success, and more. Each anthology includes 20 to 30 stories, which provide a well-rounded picture of teen views and experiences with the topic.

The anthologies are suitable for many settings, including:
  • advisories
  • health classes
  • language arts classes
  • remedial reading classes
  • writing classes
  • ELL classes
  • after school programs
  • "themed" classes and groups, e.g., on immigration, masculinity, etc.
The most frequent comment from teachers is that "Teens who won't read anything else ask for your stories." Go to the store to see what’s available. Search directly on popular themes below:
