The Teen Program offers exciting and stimulating opportunities for teens ages 12-18 in the City of Raleigh and Wake County. The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for teens to create, plan, and implement programs, and to design and develop projects and special events that will be of benefit to their peers, the community, and to themselves as individuals. Through recreational, educational, social, empowerment based, and career exploration activities, teens can discover ways to make important personal developments.
Teens participating in these programs are encouraged to take an interest in their personal growth and development, and to realize their potential leadership ability and role as responsible young adults.

Let the Teen Program Staff custom design a teambuilding workshop to help meet your group's needs and challenges.
Initiative activities are utilized to enhance problem solving, teambuilding, conflict resolution and other life skills through experiential learning and will be tailored to your specific group.
These programs are great for schools, church groups, student councils, drop-out prevention programs, and many other established youth groups.
Courses will be held at the site of the participants' choosing and will be scheduled according to availability. Please contact the Teen Program at least one month in advance of desired program date.
The cost is $20 per staff hour of program with a minimum of 2 staff. We require a 1 to 8 staff member to student ratio.
