Publishing the Work of Rural Youth

Why a youth journalism publishing site?

We believe all youth have important ideas and perspectives to share. We also believe that youth have an important voice in their communities and deserve to be represented in local news. This website hopes to empower youth in rural areas, with the support of educators, to investigate, write, record, and share the stories that they think are significant.

Civic Journalism for Rural Youth is part of the National Writing Project’s family of youth publishing projects, all gathered under the Writing Our Future initiative.

Writing Our Future projects are designed by educators for educators and the young people they work with. Intended for use in schools, libraries, and other educational settings. All projects are COPPA compliant and educator-managed. NWP is committed to supporting young people’s writing and civic participation by providing a safe and supportive environment for youth writing, media creation, sharing, and publishing.
