Youth in Community—Issue #160

Our new Communities issue on Youth in Community is on its way to subscribers and stores now. You can subscribe now or order a sample and we'll ship you a copy today!

Our Fall 2013 issue focuses on Youth in Community. We hear first-hand accounts of childhoods spent in intentional community, along with reflections from now-grown-up communitarians on what they learned there. Parents share the joys and challenges of raising children in community, including the "home vs. public schooling" dilemma. We learn about cooperative experiences in which teens and young adults empower themselves to be world-changers—and also about Sociocracy, new books surveying British and spiritual communities, and two community elders with much to teach. Please join us!

Communities Magazine

Since 1972, Communities has been the primary resource for information, issues, and ideas about intentional communities in North America - from urban co-ops to cohousing groups to ecovillages to rural communes. Communities now also focuses on creating and enhancing community in the workplace, in nonprofit or activist organizations, and in neighborhoods, with enhanced coverage of international communities as well. We explore the joys and challenges of cooperation in its many dimensions.

The Communities magazine website features a selection of articles from our quarterly magazine online. We post a handful of articles from each issue so you can get a taste of what Communities offers.
