Are you a teen looking to gain service hours while learning more about Teatown? If so, we have the program for you!
Teens in Teatown is a volunteer and social group for teens aged 14-17. TNT participants meet monthly and weekly to work on service projects, develop their interpersonal and leadership skills, enjoy fun activities and outings. Choose between a 5 or 10 month long commitment.
Teens volunteer weekly for special service projects and attend monthly meetings where they gain practical skills, leadership development and have the opportunity to meet other Teatown Teens!
