"Students from our school who participate in TeenWorks are exposed to many different things that will help them progress to college - different situations, people, and challenges. TeenWorks really pushes them out of their comfort zone and helps them develop as individuals. Our students have had really positive experiences."

− Jill McKinney, Student Advisor at Christel House Academy

"When teens start the TeenWorks experience at Ball State, I think they expect to earn money and to have something to occupy their time, but they get so much more! They build bonds with the community, get a college experience, build friendships, and gain mentors. Bringing the students on campus and allowing them to get a full college experience through the TeenWorks program helps them believe that they can go to college. It helps them believe in their future."

− Ro Anne Royer Engle, Ball State University

"TeenWorks is much more than just a work opportunity. Through the TeenWorks experience, students and their families come to realize that going to college is a real possibility for them. They learn to see college as part of their future. I have seen that being a part of TeenWorks changes the lives of these young people in an important way."
