“The relevance of your resources catches my students’ attention. Reading the stories has brought me closer to them and their lives outside of school.”

Elise Baranowski, NYC ELA teacher

Our approach helps caring adults engage teens in social & emotional learning through literacy.

Our stories, developed in a rigorous writing program, are uniquely compelling to youth whose voices are missing from mainstream content. The stories model social and emotional learning, and show teens how to make positive changes in their lives. They also motivate teens to read and write.
