Online Resources for Teens

Be the Place Where Teens Independently Explore Interests and Concerns

Alexis has a lot of questions about things like peer pressure, alcohol, and relationships, but she’s too embarrassed to ask her parents, friends, or teachers. Be the safe place Alexis can go to get good information without having to ask.

Alexis is just one of the teens in your community who are looking for information about their interests and concerns. Adolescents often want to explore topics independently – not ready or too shy to have a conversation with those that can guide them to resources.

Whether their interests are as light as pop music or as weighty as drugs or sexuality, you can provide them with easy-to-use, accessible electronic resources that are more reliable and expert than what they may find on a random blog or sponsored website. Support the teens in your community with online learning programs, eBooks, and other resources that are available 24/7 to help them find answers.
