You have the power to shape your own future… and we’ll show you how

Teens in Action

There’s no doubt that the teen years are tough, but these can also be some of the best times of your life. Teens in Action is a six-session program that will help you make the most of being a teenager and figure out where to go from here. Each session is packed with not-boring activities, not-lame discussion, and not-stupid videos on topics that actually matter. Even better…you’ll learn skills you can start using now to make positive changes in your life. You’ll learn:

  • the secret to gaining freedom.
  • communication skills that work in any situation (even in a post-apocalyptic zombie world).
  • how to solve problems creatively (as demonstrated by a werewolf in recovery).
  • how to get along with all kinds of people (including adults).
  • …and a lot more.

Use these skills to start creating the life you want for yourself. Teens in Action is about learning how to take control. Because it’s YOUR life!
