Our writers inform thousands of educators about what students need to thrive

Educators succeed when they understand the challenges students face—and the strengths and talents they bring to those challenges.

That’s why Youth Communication is partnering with Chalkbeat to get our writers’ stories in front of its 1 million average monthly users. (Sixty-five percent of them are teachers, counselors, and administrators.)

Last week, Chalkbeat reprinted “In NYC, Culture Shock Took Me by Surprise: Hailing from Trinidad, I’ve struggled to find my place among other Black students” by Etana Williams. Chalkbeat readers learned how immigrant students struggle to adjust to their new school lives.

Another media partner, The Nation, reprinted “Not Allowed to Be a Kid: As a Black youth, I’ve been surveilled and pushed around by police since I was in elementary school” by Amaru Howard.

We are thrilled that these stories are informing educators and the general public about teens’ lived experiences.
