In 1981, Indiana philanthropist Gene B. Glick began what was then called the Pro 100 program with a simple idea – to provide teens with a summer job that would teach them the importance of self-discipline, a hard day’s work, and giving back to the community. Today, TeenWorks continues this founding vision through our summer employment and college readiness program and supportive services throughout the school year.
