"The TeenWorks students were an invaluable part of the Marian University Nina Mason Pulliam (NMP) EcoLab team this summer. They provided quality work consistently throughout their time with us, and they did everything with pride. They were conscientious, caring, and professional, and they contributed greatly to the beautification and maintenance of the NMP EcoLab. "− Stephanie Schuck, Restoration Ecologist at Marian University Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab
"Last summer, TeenWorks teens were responsible for growing 43 varieties of vegetables at my eight-acre urban farm. It was an amazing experience for me to see teens become passionate about what they’re doing and become farmers. They know how to grow their own food now! It was transformative and they really changed my perspective on today’s youth. "− Tyler Gough, Lead Farmer and Community Worksite Leader at Indy Urban Acres
The success of the TeenWorks program relies heavily on the resilient, collaborative partnerships that exist between TeenWorks and the individuals, community-based organizations, corporations, high schools, and institutions of higher education located in the neighborhoods where the TeenWorks teams work, volunteer, and learn.
We are always seeking new partnerships and program sites to help our teens connect to college, careers, and the community.
- Do you have a community service project that our teens can help to complete?
- Does your organization have wi-fi accessible space that could be used as a TeenWorks classroom during our six-week summer program?
- Are you interested in hosting a day of service?
