The issue of L.A. Youth intended to mark 25 years of the newspaper produced for teens by teens will also be the end of its run.
The newspaper — printed six times a year and distributed in schools across Los Angeles County — was centered on first-person accounts of young people writing about themselves, their culture and their community. The students explored such subjects as life as an undocumented immigrant, drug abuse, teen pregnancy and budget cuts in the schools — as well as such lighter fare as music reviews and school lunch options.
