Helping Staff to Help Teens Make Better Choices
horizontal rule
Youth Communication’s stories provide models of peers who are making good choices. The writers are especially credible and persuasive because they are facing the same challenges as teens in your programs, including foster care, gangs, substance abuse, unsafe sex, and involvement with the juvenile justice system.

Youth Communication provide many products services to help you use the stories with teens, including:

Anthologies: We offer more than 50 high-interest anthologies on topics ranging from dealing with family, friends, and relationships to success in school and work. Our stories model positive decision-making and values while remaining true to the struggles many teens face. Staff use our books to engage teens and spark thoughtful discussions on difficult topics.

Professional development: We can help your staff make the most effective use of our stories, programs, and websites.

Lessons and curricula: Many of our programs, such as Real Men and Real Jobs, include comprehensive curricula with hands-on activities.

Customized content: We can create products and services specially for your audience. For example, we created www.youthsuccessnyc.org, a website to help youth aging out of foster care, for New York City's child welfare agency.

Focus groups to help you learn what teens are really thinking and provide services that are carefully tailored to address their needs and concerns.

Licensing: You may have excellent curriculum or training programs, but need youth voices to really drive home your points. Our stories are available for licensing books, websites, coursepacks, training programs, etc.
