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.
