Lisa Rose, Teens in Action Program Manager
Witnessing exceptional philanthropy efforts from our students is one thing we LOVE! Teens in Action leaders and participants put their Social and Emotional Learning competencies into practice during our workshops, in their weekly non-profit service, and at one-time events. It is our intention to encourage students to use the skills acquired through service, outside of TIA as well.
