The Youth Empowerment Alliance, Inc. (YEA) has developed Rescue Writing ( an online platform utilizing easy-to-use software similar to photobook creation providing pre-made templates and art elements for children to use to create their own stories. This program is popular with homeschoolers and classroom use, and children can have a published book featuring their best work when it is done. Page templates and art elements are versatile and generic, so any idea can be turned into a story. Children can use the existing art elements, create their own or upload other art into the software to make their stories unique. The child can work collaboratively with other children, or work on their own.

To date, more than 30 million books have been produced using this software, which validates it ease of use. Rescue Writing has online coaching videos from professional athletes, journalists, authors and celebrities which make learning fun and exciting.
