Young Adults Writer

Fully Remote

Applicants must reside in: United States

At Understood, we believe young people who learn and think differently have the potential to live amazing lives as confident, lifelong learners. Our mission is to empower them with tools, resources, and community to navigate the world, so they can thrive.

We are building a new team and program at Understood. It’s focused on young adults who learn and think differently — that includes young people with learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADHD, and more. And we need writers, bloggers, and storytellers to share their stories. The audience we’re trying to reach includes high-schoolers, recent high school graduates, young adults trying to get their first job, and college-age readers.

To launch our new Young Adults project, we’re hiring 5 to 10 diverse young writers, each paid to create content to help other young people like them. If you join us, you’ll write about topics like “How do I find my strengths?” and “Picking a career that fits your strengths.” You’ll also help support and represent people with learning and thinking differences while building a career working with digital content.

Key Responsibilities

  • Write content for young adults who learn and think differently
  • Follow guidelines for writing
  • Share your and your family’s story
  • Be genuine and open about your hopes, dreams, challenges, and struggles
  • Promote the project through social media and elsewhere


All are welcome to apply, and no experience or degree is necessary. You can live anywhere in the country.

All you need are (1) a passion and interest in Understood‘s mission; (2) skill for writing; (3) an openness to learning; and (4) a willingness to open up and share stories through the project.

About Understood

We are committed to helping the millions of people with learning and thinking differences.

Everyone sees the world in different ways. That’s what makes the world worth exploring. Learning and thinking differences, like dyslexia, ADHD, and dysgraphia, affect 1 in 5 people in the U.S. But resources and support are scarce and life can feel like it’s set up for a normal that doesn’t exist. People get left behind without the right opportunities, and when that happens we all miss out.

We offer tools, support, and community to people who learn and think differently, and the people around them. Our focus is making real, positive impact at important moments in someone’s journey.

We aim to empower as many people as possible: at home, at school, and at work.

Founded in 2014, Understood’s mission is to support the 1 in 5 children with learning and thinking differences. Understood remains a free resource that aims to help everyone - regardless of difference - thrive.

We are committed to helping the millions of people with learning and thinking differences.
