Excellence is a Lifestyle
At Teens of Excellence, we believe that every child has excellence potential, no matter his or her background. Our programs and activities work to instill confidence and self-esteem in the displaced and at-risk youth of North Philadelphia and the greater Philadelphia region.
Teens of Excellence uses a combination of life skills training, nonviolent mediation therapies, and school/job placement training to give 25+ kids and teens (at any given time) the fresh start they desperately need.
We work to help the teens in our shelter overcome enormous obstacles so that they can grow up make positive choices for themselves, their families, and their community. But we can’t do this alone! We need your help in our ‘village’ to raise today’s children to be the vibrant, wise, compassionate adults of tomorrow.
