Summer can be a challenging time for middle school youth and the current events have added to the already difficult adolescent period. To help youth successfully navigate through this complicated period of their lives and the uncertainty of the future, youth need positive role models; high, clear and fair expectations; and opportunities to contribute and experience success.
Teen Connections is a virtual youth community that meets Monday-Friday online and provides youth with a safe space to gather and learn. Structured specifically for middle school age youth, Scholars will experience career exploration, group chats, and exposure to community role models who support young people through education and mentorship. Teen Connection will involve Scholars in activities to spark their imagination. Join us for games, activities, and fun incentives to keep youth engaged and inspired.
Teens have the opportunity to:
Learn from industry professionals in a variety of career field
Connect with other youth in their community
Form supportive relationships with caring adults invested in supporting teens social, emotional, and physical well-being
Teen Scholars can earn incentives and cash of up to $100
