    For a teenage audience, try to add the following:

    - include informal language, and colloquialisms - i.e. slang and words you would not expect in a formal piece of writing

    - relate ideas which many teenagers think of often - so instead of talking about politics, which relates to adults, maybe talk about video games or teenage love

    - use short paragraphs or some form of writing in which it is not just a big block of writing. Perhaps use pictures to stimulate teenagers attention, or a comic font - but most teenagers will be put off when seeing a large big block of text

    - include the audience and use persuasive techniques - use of 'our' and 'we' involves the audience and will persuade them better to agree with your ideas

    I hope this helps you :)
