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. Fast forward to the present, TeenWorks continues this founding vision through our summer employment program, but now exists as a stand alone 501(c)3 organization that focuses on year round programming and collaborative partnerships with community organizations.
