As young teens begin to form opinions about the world around them, WORLDteen is there to broaden their knowledge beyond purely current event coverage, extending into opportunities for critical thinking and growing their discernment muscles early and often.

WORLDteen stories aren’t selected for how appealing they are; rather, our editors look for news  that elicits the reader’s response, encouraging them to question what’s in front of them as well as apply biblical knowledge wherever possible.

Eight topic areas are included in every issue, with each containing four unique stories and access to online photo slideshows. The online News Bytes section provides a fresh news story every weekday. Each online story includes a safe discussion area for readers to share comments. To aid your teaching, a teaching guide with quizzes and a selection of printable worksheets is available for each issue.
