iGY Contributor Map
Forty-eight youths from 20 countries worked together to produce Issue 1 2019.

We are young reporters and visual artists from all over the world learning how publishing works. From content creation to advertising and marketing, you’ll find youths in every role.

We have a strong group of mentors, including veterans of some of the world’s top news organizations, who nurture us and guide us as we become the next generation of journalists. Untethered from geographic boundaries, we report news about people, places, and important issues with local, national, and global impact. Harnessing the power of the internet, we collaborate with underrepresented communities, shining a spotlight on their often untold and unheard stories. Our goal is to amplify young voices and spark conversations around the world.

We are innovators who aim to expand the frontiers of storytelling. Although you’ll definitely find straight-reported articles rendered in traditional formats, our goal is to spark your curiosity with ambitious features delivered in formats that are second nature to our generation. You can enjoy our multimedia reports, quizzes, games, and videos on any platform, from your desktop to your iPad and mobile phone.

Also, our stories are distributed by Tribune News Service. That means our articles and images are available for more than 2,000 editors from nearly 100 countries to use in their newspapers and magazines and on their websites. Not to toot our own horn, but we are the only for-youth-by-youth publication whose stories are distributed by a publicly traded U.S. newspaper company.
