Youth Today is an independent, monthly national trade periodical-with 24/7/365 online access-for professional youth workers and administrators of youth-serving agencies, and researchers and public policy staff who work on youth issues.

Youth Today is a nonprofit published by our Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University, located just outside of Atlanta. The Center also publishes the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE.org), an online publication reporting on juvenile justice and related issues around the U.S. Together, the publications are a convening powerhouse in the youth service arena.

With a national distribution, Youth Today covers the business of starting, operating and evaluating programs in areas such as juvenile justice, foster care, mentoring, substance abuse, sexual behavior, after school, youth employment and overall youth development.

Other issues covered include child welfare; college and careers; gang and violence prevention; adolescent health; teen pregnancy and parenting; after-school programs and mentoring; best practices; and much more.

Youth Today is dedicated to producing quality, independent journalism devoted to policy issues and programs affecting children and youth, especially the disadvantaged, and also provides professional development training in areas important to subscribers.

The Center for Sustainable Journalism became publisher of Youth Today in March, 2012. Formerly it was published by the American Youth Work Center, a nonprofit founded by Publisher Bill Treanor in 1984 in Washington, D.C
