Our stories help adults build empathy for teens’ struggles so that they can be more effective in all of their work with teens.
Major NYC agencies including the NYC Department of Probation, Administration for Children’s Services, and the NYC Department of Education have hired us to help their staff create more supportive settings for struggling youth. They use our teen-written stories to improve their youth’s literacy skills while showing them how their peers respond constructively to challenges.
In the last three years, we have trained more than 500 teachers, youth workers, counselors, probation officers, and even prison guards to use our stories and lessons.
helps adults continue to transform their settings into a safe place where youth feel recognized and seen.
