Help create positive change and foster community through your art!
Members are invited to submit original work in any medium.
Let what inspires you be a spark for others!
Published content on the internet can be riddled with dire descriptions of what’s wrong, making it hard to find information on what’s working well. And most social media is geared to keeping you in an information (or misinformation) bubble, selling your personal data, and targeting you with ads.
youB is taking a different approach. We’re creating a community platform that’s focused exclusively on core environmental and social values. All content, in any medium, will strive to be informative, inspirational, and motivational so it can serve as a catalyst for our members who want to Be the Energy Behind What Matters™.
Our mission is to support the millions of people worldwide who care deeply about people and the planet—living our values at home, at work, and everywhere in between. We’re a community supporting each other to be better, do better and make things better.
We invite you to share a personal story or one that describes an individual or organization having a real positive impact. Join in the energy behind a global social and environmental shift– find and share examples that will inform, inspire, and motivate other members.
Anyone age 16 and older in the youB community can submit content for consideration. youB reserves the right to accept or reject any work. We’re currently building a portfolio of accepted content. For an idea of what we’re looking for, and maybe some inspiration, check out the content in our online community.
All content submitted for publication must follow the youB Curated Content Guidelines. Briefly, a Creative Contributor must select any one to three values from the youB Environmental and Social Values. As stated above, the work must strive to be informative, inspirational, and motivational. Additional information can be found in our guidelines.
After a piece of content is submitted to youB, it is reviewed by our Managing Editors and the Editorial Team for quality and alignment with youB values. The work is either accepted without modifications, accepted contingent on modifications, or rejected.
Anyone can read, listen, or view Creative Contributors’ work, without a membership requirement or paywall. Your work can be shared anywhere!
Published content will be searchable by value, so anyone interested in your topic can easily find your work. This is why it’s so important to identify one to three values when you submit your work. It will also be searchable by Creative Contributor names, titles, keywords, dates, and medium (prose, poetry, video, audio, imagery, and mixed media).
youB will heavily promote Creative Contributor Works on other media beyond the youB platform. In addition, any member or visitor on the youB platform will be encouraged to share content widely, on other platforms, and to their friends within the youB community.
Content Creators retain ownership of their content with royalty-free usage rights licensed to youB.
We invite you to share your story with the youB community. We’re currently accepting submissions in any medium that aim to inspire, inform, and motivate around social and environmental values.

We are looking for contributions that are informative, inspirational, and motivational to fuel youB members to Be the Energy Behind What Matters. Now and into the future.

Please give us 7-10 days to review your completed work. If you’ve sent an idea, we’ll let you know if it sounds like a good fit, and give you feedback to further hone it. Please keep in mind that this does not guarantee the piece will be accepted once the full work is submitted.
