“I wish someone had told me not to take so many courses my first semester and that the course load is different than it is in high school.”

— Gabby Felitto, age 19
from her story “How I Survived My Psychology Lecture Class”

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.
