Peer Mentors - the next generation of supportive teenagers.
Our Teenternship Program is specifically designed for teens who are interested in taking on more responsibility and commitment. While this program is perfect for those who would like to earn school credit or fulfill a community service requirement for graduation/entry to a higher education institution, we enroll teens based on their personal interest and desire to gain the experience. By participating in this program, they get to apply themselves in a real world environment and develop their communication skills, teamwork ability, success-forming habits, emotional intelligence, and self-sufficiency.
