The Xyza Mission

It’s simple: to bring news to kids in a fun and engaging way. We believe that the world is filled with many fascinating things—some good, some bad, but mostly interesting. Our mission is to build a news experience that provides a starting point for interesting and engaging conversations.

Vision

We want Xyza to help build connections and conversations that extend beyond the classroom, dining room, and the playground. Our hope is that Xyza becomes a trend that transcends into a daily habit. After all, we’re building an experience, not homework.

Why Xyza?

Because we know every kid is different. Because we’re turning news into something that kids can relate to. Because we’re building a news destination that kids want to visit, rather than something that they are required to visit. Because we aren’t asking questions that have the right answer, but their answer.

That’s the kind of news experience we’re building for kids. That’s what makes us different. And that’s why we share the news in different formats. Learn through watching? We have videos. Like turning the pages of a paper? We have monthly review in print. Love listening to stories? We’re working on podcasts! Want to be a part of the news experience? We’ve got a Junior Reporter program! You name it, and we’re most likely working on it! So, why Xyza? Simply put, we’re making a news experience that’s just for you.

Testimonials

  • The kids in my library classes love the Xyza print newspaper. They are reading it together during library time and say that they love how much easier it is to read than “the normal newspaper.” They are especially happy that the February issue contains news about Trump because most of them have been getting news second-hand from parents and siblings, so it feels good to read for themselves about what is going on. Thanks!

    — San Francisco school educator

  • The kids are really motivated to read it based on the format and content so it’s a good way to check for comprehension and these skills. I will be using it as a model as we work on a class project of putting out a newspaper about things going on in our community and our school.

    — Chicago School Educator

  • I love the layout of your January preview issue, the news you are covering, and the way you cover it. It is perfect for students in my school.

    — Sonoma school educator

  • I mentioned to my entire staff how much I’ve been enjoying Xyza and how impressed I’ve been with the language and how accessible it is to kids.

    — Marin school educator

  • I want to thank you deeply for the resource that has been missing for too long. It provides a great way to talk to my kids about news today.

    — Dad to 9-year old
