Community Teen Coalition is a youth enrichment program designed to generate the skills and motivation necessary for success in post-secondary and entrepreneurship education. Under-served youth ages 8-18 tackle important issues such as childhood illiteracy, peer pressure, low self-esteem, homelessness, gangs, and drug prevention so that they may develop healthy self images and life skills.
By providing young people with the skills they need to be successful in the community, we seek to achieve the following objectives:
Empower the community to become involved in the lives of our youth, making them aware of important issues affecting the community as a whole.
Maintain contact with school officials and staff for status reports on the progression of students in the program.
Invest in the professionalism of Community Teen Coalition through a staff that is licensed and experienced in the field.
Partner with existing organizations to expand services through career centers and job placement.
Facilitate weekly group, individual, and family sessions to address family and peer interactions, emotional disturbances, and community related issues.
