WHO ARE WE?
Teens with Promise operates a Teen Shop dedicated to providing teenagers with the supplies they need to start and stay in school. Teens are provided with clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, medical/dental care, and holiday gifts. The charity also provides services to homeless youth trying to finish school. All materials are provided at no cost to the student. Teens with Promise has provided services to over 5,000 youth in El Paso County.
Our organizational mission is to advocate for at-risk teens in the Pikes Peak Region by creating and enhancing opportunities
to complete their education, while promoting recreation and
Corporate Sponsors Needed!!
Imagine being a teen without adequate food, shelter, clothing, medical/dental care or the necessary supplies to get through a normal day at school, let alone graduate.
For these teens, their present existence is challenging at best, but the long-term effects of their low self-esteem, self-confidence, and educational performance will be far more devastating, if there’s no supportive intervention.
On Friday, September 22, 2017, the Teens with Promise annual fundraising dinner will take place. This fun-filled evening of dining and entertainment, along with unique and exclusive auction items, will raise funds to help underwrite the needs of over 2,500 local homeless and disadvantaged youth between the ages of 13 and 18 in the coming year.
With the aforementioned in mind, it is our hope that you will join us in our efforts to aid these youth in not only succeeding in school but also in life by becoming a sponsor of this year’s event. Please call 719-216-6190 for more information.
