Teens with Promise Mission
organizational mission is to advocate for at-risk teens
in the Pikes Peak Region by creating and enhancing
opportunities to complete their education, while
promoting recreation and social activities.
Teens with Promise believes that all youth are “Teens with Promise” and that all teens should be given an opportunity to thrive in a safe and healthy environment, to have basic needs met, to mature naturally, and to be educated in a non-threatening, empowering atmosphere. Youth served through Teens with Promise may lack appropriate medical/dental care, lack of shelter and food, have issues with truancy/ academic troubles, or may not know how to access suitable programs to meet their needs.
Teens with Promise operates a “Teen Shop” dedicated to providing teenagers with the supplies they need to start and stay in school. All materials are provided at no cost to the student. Schools, shelters, social service agencies and other professionals are able to make a referral for a student to come and shop for needed clothes, schools supplies and sports equipment in a store-like setting. In each of the past several years, this program has distributed school supplies and clothing to more than 5,000 youth.
