"This has been a life altering experience. I cannot even express its magnitude in words.
TEENPOWER is the best thing on the planet. No exaggeration."
The evidence-based TEENPOWER program has created a culture and a support system of drug-free young leaders since 1992 as the only youth-led leadership
development and substance abuse prevention program of its kind in Southwestern Indiana and in the Tri-State area. With the majority of emphasis on positive youth development and substance abuse prevention, TEENPOWER also directly focuses on:
life skills & character building
positive body image & self-esteem
other topics related to healthy adolescent development
Over 3,325 youth have been trained and motivated through TEENPOWER to serve as catalysts for positive change in their own lives and in their communities. At TEENPOWER 2013, 358 high school and middle school students representing 37 schools and 5 counties were empowered to become stronger leaders. After camp, they impacted over 4,800 others through their prevention-based service projects planned during TEENPOWER and funded by $6740 in grants from Youth Resources!
