We're Listening

Still more leaders have signed on to support teen voices in Teen Ink's publications. The following individuals receive our print magazine every month and have supported Teen Ink in a variety of other ways, for which we thank them.

"We, as community leaders, business executives, athletes, educators, artists, authors and caring individuals, receive Teen Ink because we feel it is important for your voices to be heard. We applaud the concept of a reader-supported publication for students to consider the ideas, talents and concerns of their peers. We want you to know that we, too, are listening."
