Unveiling the New Website for the New Youth Today

Today marks the beginning of Youth Today Going Green. We are all digital now and are celebrating Going Green with an entirely new design, including a brand-new logo. The online design has been months in the making, with emphasis on making sure our content and advertisements look great, and the site is more user-friendly on your computer, tablet or phone.

We would really appreciate your feedback.

We are also looking for your ideas and experiences to share with our audiences. Want to write commentary or your personal experiences? Go here to learn how.

Got story ideas about out-of-school (OST),  summer learning or child welfare issues that would interest our audiences? Contact our Senior Editor, Leslie Lapides.

Love taking photos? We are looking for professional and amateur photographers who focus on issues that affect youth. They can be individual photos or — better yet — photo essays. The photo essay could be a slice of life that’s humorous or hard-hitting.

To alert us, please use Instagram and hashtag the photos you would like us and our audiences to see: #bokeh_focus. We’ll take a look and one of our editors will be in touch through Instagram. Or you can contact the Bokeh_Focus editors directly.

Thank you for your interest in Youth Today and in the youth, families and communities we and you serve.

Leonard Witt is the publisher of Youth Today and executive editor of the Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University, located outside Atlanta.
