You don't have to take our word for anything. We have asked real teens to step up and share what they know about some tough subjects.
Some of these real teens are leaders. Some will tell you what it's like to be a parent when you are still young enough to be in high school. And others are going to tell you what it's like to be incarcerated, serving a sentence for armed robbery, sexual assault, or murder.
Teens as leaders
They are leaders at school and in their communities. Find out what the qualilties are that make a leader, and how you can be a leader, too.
Real teen parents
Teen parents tell their stories, from the day they found out they were going to be parents to their outlook on the future.
Teens face consequences
Teen offenders doing time in youth facilities tell you what it's like and how they got there. These are real teens paying real consequences.
"I knew there would be consequences for what I was doing, but at that point in time, I wasn't thinking about that."
"When you get locked up, it's no joke."
"I didn't really think I'd get caught. I was having fun."
