A former award winning journalist of 33 years (mostly in newspapers), Gevalt founded Young Writers Project, Inc. in 2006. The Project focuses its work on http://youngwritersproject.org, a respectful teen community that engages kids to write and use digital media, helps them get better through peer-to-peer feedback and mentor/artist guidance and publishes their best work online, in newspapers, on radio & TV and on stage. YWP showcases work in valued digital spaces as well: http://thevoice.youngwritersproject.org and http://cowbird.com/ywp and http://medium.com/the-crow. YWP works extensively with schools and teachers to help them use digital technology to enhance learning.

youngwritersproject.org is an open site and youths from around the world are encouraged to join.
