Alumni: Making a Difference in their Communities, and the World

horizontal rule

More than 2,500 teens have participated in Youth Communication's writing programs. Some have achieved "brand name" success: they include a U.S. Supreme Court clerk, a MacArthur Fellow, and one of the most highly acclaimed choreographers in the country. Most alumni have gone to college—often as the first in their family to do so. (Here's a list of the colleges they have attended.) They have also published more than 70 books as adult writers.

But what really characterizes our alumni is their spirit of community service. Writing for Youth Communication, they learned that their stories could have an immediate impact—helping their peers get into college, avoid STDs, find a job, cope with trauma, and more.

That experience has had a powerful impact on Youth Communication's teen writers and artists. Many have since gone on to careers that continue the community service work they began at Youth Communication—as teachers, college professors, social workers, Americorps and Peace Corps volunteers, foundation officers, doctors and nurses, clergy, police officers, and community activists.

The following thumbnail profiles of more than 250 alumni show the diversity and significance of their achievements.
