KidSpirit Online is a free teen magazine & website for kids created by and for young people to tackle life’s big questions together. Teens share online writing, poetry, artwork, volunteer opportunities and examine their spiritual development in a non-affiliated and inclusive forum. Join the conversation!

  1. I am soon traveling to Kathmandu, Nepal to work in several schools in the Latipur District of Patan. How can I facilitate teachers in Nepal to have their students submit work to your great magazine. I recently met one of your staff and she gave the Kids Spirit card, but cannot find her card! I leave October 23 and will be in Nepal 2 months.
