Teens In Action

Teens In Action

Teens In Action is a youth leadership program that equips high school students with the social and emotional skills needed to learn about themselves and the needs of their community. The program prepares young people to work with peers, adults, community members, and stakeholders to affect change. Through a two-day introductory boot camp and monthly workshops, Teens In Action participants practice the following competencies throughout the academic school year: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Along with developing social and emotional learning (SEL) skills, teens volunteer with local organizations to apply that knowledge and give back to their community. Before graduating, teens showcase the skills that they learn throughout the year by creating and implementing a Capstone Service Project that engages community partners.

Due to the global impact of COVID-19, Frameworks has made the difficult decision to temporarily pause recruitment for the 2020-2021 Teens In Action program year. Applications for our next program year will open in April 2021. We thank you for understanding and hope you can join us next year!
