Recent Issues
YCteen has featured the authentic voices of teens since 1980. Written by New York City high school students, the magazine covers a wide range of topics, from education, peer pressure, and sex to identity, social justice, and politics. The magazine, which is published five times per year, also offers writing contests and lessons for teachers and after-school staff that show how to use the stories with teens.

The full text of our most recent issues is available below, and you can find hundreds of additional stories through our More Story Topics page.
