Be The Change Club


What Can You Do With Eighty-Three Cents?

Although we are proud of the work we have done, our community educators and civic leaders continue to be concerned about the number of teens at risk in the Elk Grove area. In fact, given the explosive growth of the Elk Grove community, there are many more teens than ever that are at risk. Specifically, more youth in our community are exposed to negative influences such as violent crime, child abuse, drugs, and poverty. As a result, many of these youth feel they are helpless to change their circumstance and feel their future is hopeless. The challenge we face is to find ways to help reduce the impact of these risk factors by identifying programs that can help to protect these children. As a result, we feel our programs are invaluable not only to the youth that we serve but also to the overall Elk Grove community.

For Teen Center USA to continue to serve these amazing teens with a spirit of excellence, we must raise $350,000 per year. If you join our monthly donor program, for as little as $.83 a day, you could invest in the lives of Elk Grove teens. This investment directly supports the teens by providing meals for our Breakfast and Brunch Clubs during the school year and summer vacation respectively. You will also be providing teens a safe place for them to do their homework, engage in activities and connect with our Site Mentors. Your investment also helps us to maintain and operate our Mobile Teen Center which seeks to serve students beyond our footprint in Old Town Elk Grove. 

Thank you so much for considering to make an investment in the lives of Elk Grove Teenagers!
