Youth developed resources made by youth for youth. These resources were developed by a number of youth throughout the North and are based on real life issues through the eyes of a youth. The graphic novel UnWANTED was a great success-over 8000 copies have been distributed.
Following the graphic novel , large and locker posters, magnetic trading cards, calendars, website animation, mouse pads, and a drama production have all been developed. A drama production and accompanying toolkit is available. To order resources (based on availability) please feel free to contact us. We thank all of the youth for their dedication and effort in the development of the UnWANTED resources.
