Old Ideas with A New Delivery

Avant-Youth is a multimedia startup that delivers news and entertainment to Atlanta's youth. We’re grown, sophisticated babies. The idea is to come from the outside in with an unapologetically idealistic perspective. Our ideals are grounded in traditional journalism, where fluffy DRAMA is cut through—right to the core of what’s happening.

Hyper-Local and Youth-Oriented

We believe in building a foundation from the ground up. Atlanta’s youth is the key to Atlanta’s success. And that potential for growth is indicative of what can happen elsewhere and beyond. We want to do our part by providing good news to the young people who live next door.

We’re Fun-ish

Major news outlets often forget that the act of consuming information should be both enlightening and exciting. We recognize that our word isn’t law. Good, fun, news comes from recognizing and poking fun at life’s imperfections. Everyone is an ugly snowflake. Come laugh with/at us.

We Need Your Help

Idealistic dreams aren’t usually conceived with the means to make them happen, though. In order to run this company without risking our journalistic integrity, we rely on the generosity of our local community members and patrons. Help us stay out of the media mess. 


We thank you


Our readers and fans are the lifeblood of our company. Without you, we couldn’t hope to do what we do. We recognize and appreciate your continued support. Thank you!
