Scenarios USA is a dynamic, rapidly growing non-profit. The organization is dedicated to helping youth make smart decisions about their lives by offering them a creative forum to look at their behavior, express who they are and how they see the world. Scenarios USA asks teens to write stories abut issues that shape their lives. In the past five years, 7,500 teens have responded with raw, honest and revealing insights. They write about peer pressure, body image, pregnancy scares, HIV testing, self-esteem, friendship and commitment. Twelve of these stories have been made into high-quality short films in partnership with the teen writers and some of Hollywood's finest filmmakers.
