Posted on by · Leave a Comment

If you’re a teen or young adult, and have ever thought about making a difference, then The InSite was designed for you. The site is designed  to give you the information, the inspiration, and many possible game plans so you can take positive charge of your life. It’s all about discovering real ways to make the planet, as well as your own personal corner of it, a saner, cleaner, more equitable place to live. By focusing on doing what it takes to make things better and sharing the personal stories of people actively involved in all aspects of that process, The InSite will help you unleash the infinite power for positive change within us all.

There are several different corners of InSite, including  the following:

Me, Myself, & I – talking about self-image, emotions, and just the facts on health, sex, and drugs.

Relationships Unlimited – your relationships with your parents, sibs, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, authority figures, and how to find a relationship.

Justice Now – all about social justice – making sure everybody is treated fairly.

Spaceship Earth – about the environment – it’s our only planet, better take care of it!

The Gallery – a place to send in your writing, art, photography, music, media reviews.

Hey Terra! – Advice column from a mythical being named Terra, a wise being who’s been around long enough to know plenty, but not so long that she’s forgotten what it’s like to be a teen.

The Story – a teen soap opera you can participate in through email.

Been There – these are stories featuring young people who have, well… been there and have plenty to say about what it was like for them and what they learned!

Solutions in Sight – these features target amazing individuals and groups who are doing everything they can to make the world a better place.

The InSite first launched in 1997 as part of the online community, Talk City, produced by LiveWorld, Inc.
After changing ownership several times, The InSite is now back in the hands of its creators, Annie and David Fox.
