Highlights for Children | Diversity Employer

www.highlights.com/

It all started in a two-room office over a car dealership in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.

The year was 1946. After decades as teachers, lecturers, and nationally recognized leaders in education and child development, Garry Cleveland Myers and Caroline Clark Myers created Highlights, a monthly magazine for children ages 6 to 12. They filled it with stories, adventures, brainteasers, and, of course, our beloved Hidden Pictures puzzles. It reflected the Myerses’ philosophy that children become their “best selves” by using their creativity and imagination; developing their reading, thinking, and reasoning skills; and learning to treat others with respect, kindness, and sensitivity.

Beyond Highlights Hello, High Five, High Five Bilingue, and Highlights magazines, our brand of wholesome fun extends to games, websites, mobile apps, school skills practice books, and the book clubs Let’s Grow, LET'S PLAY Hidden Pictures, EAGLE-EYE Hidden Pictures, Mathmania, Puzzlemania, Puzzle Buzz, Top Secret Adventures, Which Way USA, and 15 Minutes a Day to School Success.

Highlights not only reaches across multiple platforms, it also spans the globe: Highlights International's products are now available in 60 countries and in 25 languages.

With our flagship magazine's success, Highlights for Children, Inc., expanded to include other companies. From our retail division, Highlights Press, to our education group, Zaner Bloser Inc., including textbook publishers, Stenhouse Publishers, and seminars for teachers at Staff Development for Educators, all our businesses make a significant contribution to the education of children.

Our Mission


We help children become their best selves by publishing content and creating experiences that engage, delight, and foster joyful learning.

Values


Primary Value: We believe children are the world's most important people.highlights hope

  • Excellence: We commit to the pursuit of excellence. Guided by our noble purpose, we apply high standards to the products and experiences we create, to the work itself, and to all our business interactions.
  • Creativity: We embrace the idea of living and working in possibility—cultivating curiosity, imagination, and courage to perceive the world in unexpected ways, implement new ideas, and enable continuous improvement.
  • Teamwork: We achieve shared success by working cohesively, respecting and combining the individual strengths of our employees, partners, and customers. We assume good intentions and put the needs of the group first to further our common goal.
  • Integrity: We believe that the high road is the best road. We stand by who we are: honest, authentic, conscientious, and ethical. Individually and together, we always try to do the right thing.

Highlights Values All Families


Our mission at Highlights is to help children become their best selves—curious, creative, caring and confident. We seek only to create the best possible content for children.

We are general interest magazines and we publish fiction and non-fiction of all types, as well as games, puzzles, jokes, and crafts. Our target audience is kids, those under the age of 12; most of them are under the age of 8 or 9. The themes we cover in our magazines are broad and universal—relatable to children trying to navigate childhood. We focus on the experiences they have in their world, rather than on the relationships among the adults around them.

For those of you who know us—who read Highlights magazine as a child or have given it to a child—you know we have a long history of inclusion. When we represent people in our magazines, we make it a point to include diversity. We strive to be diverse in every way; the goal is not to specifically spotlight diversity but to represent it within the context of the magazine the way we always have, to help kids understand that while differences exist, we are all actually more alike than different.

Our depiction of people is in support of our mission to help children become their best selves and understand that all families, including theirs, are important. We appreciate your continued trust in us in enriching children’s lives with our publications.
