TeenForce is a self-sustaining non-profit organization that helps teens (ages 14-20) gain work experience. We provide work readiness training, skills development and job placement services. Our staffing agency model makes it convenient and cost-effective for employers to hire teens and generates revenue to support our activities. Teens in our program gain confidence and skills while improving adult/teen relationships. Teens become healthy, caring and responsible young adults who have important roles in the community. We help teens increase important developmental assets and help schools in developing "career ready" youth, while addressing the problem of teen employment, which is at a 62-year low.
We plan to create a business model that will be replicated throughout the country to help a variety of diverse communities facing these challenges.
