reliable content written by students, for students

youngTimes is a student run news website. Its purpose is to provide a reliable source of information for high school students. Students write and publish all articles on youngTimes.

Students either don't have time to read the newspaper, or they don't want to because of the vocabulary and the amount of analysis they need to do on top of all of their school work.

We created youngTimes to provide reliable content that is written in a way that is easy to read and understand. The website provides news, sports, and opinion articles, and even articles about college.

When we first started out, we wanted to incorporate user feedback by using Django to create comments. However, comments were not possible with the type of coding we were doing.

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at Pfizer NY.
