Teen 360° is an after school program where teens from different schools throughout Baton Rouge come together to interact in a community. We learn peer mentoring and teamwork. During PowerHour we complete homework assignments, read, and participate in a GeniusLogic and RipIt! learning challenges. We also participate in a variety of enrichments clubs, because doing what we love is the best way to learn.

Peer Mentoring and Teamwork...

The Teens and the Program Mentors work together to create a set of rules called the Norms of Interaction. All of the teens get to say what they need in order to feel safe. These collective Norms help the teens interact in a safe and free environment. Teens also participate in a daily Community Meeting in which they greet each other, offer praise to each other, voice their needs, and share announcements. Every day teens in Teen 360 work together, speak up, and help each other out in order to create a culture of peer mentoring and teamwork.
