Summer Teens in Action Programs

Testimony: "The training you have provided in the Teens in Action course is so excellent that teens who aren't necessarily natural leaders can see a path to success. The practical advice, the legalities of working with children, the insight into groups and personalities - these are all such valuable life skills that many teens need.  (My son) did an entire year of Leadership at school, and none of it even remotely came close to what the TIA course did. I am so impressed.”  Liberty, mother
2019 information coming soon!
