Youngzine began with the desire to connect young students to the real world. Youngzine is a free, online resource for children 8-15 that promotes global awareness through engaging, easy to understand news stories, without bias or sensationalism. Youngzine's content helps educators make classroom learning relevant by making connections to the real world. Youngzine provides a forum for children to share their opinions in a moderated environment.
