The Center for Scholars & Storytellers (CSS) is the only youth-centered organization that bridges the gap between social science research and media creation to help storytellers better reflect the lived experiences of adolescents. They bring together the academic and creative communities to unlock the power of storytelling to help the next generation thrive and grow. Their primary aim is to support content creators who are working toward changing entrenched cultural narratives around the key issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, mental health, and inequality. CSS is affiliated with UCLA through the faculty appointment of their founder in the Psychology Department, one of the highest-ranked in the nation, and they have more than 100 academic collaborators working with them from universities around the world.
