Helping Staff Engage Teens in Social and Emotional Learning
If you're a New York City teen and you like the idea of writing stories that will help your peers, YCteen may be the place for you.
YCteen writers get published online and in a print magazine that's distributed to hundreds of high schools, libraries, and community-based organizations in New York City. Most teens on the staff write personal stories about their own lives, and reported stories about issues that affect young people.
During the school year, we welcome teen writers to work with us either as volunteers or for high school credit as interns.
