What Kids Can Do

What Kids Can Do (WKCD) began in the winter of 2001 to showcase "examples of young people working with adults in their schools and communities on the real-world issues that concern them most." Currently, the Feature Stories section presents Small Towns, Big Dreams, a long piece on what teenagers in Maine, South Dakota, and Texas are doing to fight brain drain and revive their rural communities. Short Takes provides a glimpse of a video project in New York City; In Their Own Words includes a collection of middle and high school graduation speeches, as well as two essays in the Young Writers' Corner: "Quiet Lessons in Prejudice" and "Paper Mill Town"; and Student Work contains students' interviews of their grandparents on their experiences during World War II, life in Appalachia, along the Rio Grande in Texas, and memories of segregation. In the Resources section, there is a list of like-minded organizations' Websites, and you can sign up to receive email updates on what's new at WKCD.
