About Educating Teens, Inc.

Educating Teens Inc. is grounded in the philosophy that when we educate our teens we are securing a healthy future. Today's teens are tomorrow's workforce, leaders, and decision makers. The investment in teenagers today is an investment in our quality of life for the future. Acknowledging that risky behaviors do not happen in isolation, a comprehensive approach is used that addresses self-esteem, peer pressure, alcohol and drug use, abusive relationships, violence, health, nutrition, exercise, and other issues that affect youth. Educating Teens Inc. takes into consideration the social and cultural experiences of youth; and provides prevention education, while empowering youth to make informed decisions about their health and well-being. Teens are encouraged to protect themselves and maintain a healthy life style.
