YC provides curricula and professional development based on true stories from teens.

Our model enables schools and other youth-serving organizations to create supportive, culturally responsive learning communities. We are committed to teens of color and other young adults whose voices need to be heard.

AMPLIFYING YOUTH VOICES

Our literacy-rich training model helps teachers, after-school workers, counselors and other professionals better connect with the teens they serve, while our youth writing programs and publications offer teens the opportunity to share their voice for other students.
