MAKE A CHANGE
PEER TO PEER SUPPORT
FOR HOMELESS/SHELTERED & DISPLACED YOUTH
To Help Homeless, Sheltered And At Risk Youth Survive,
Thrive, Grow & Create Positive Changes Designed To Empower Them.
To provide immediate survival needs to homeless youth
through peer to peer support with mentorship to challenge them to pursue a life
of opportunity, while also motivating our teen volunteers to become lifelong
champions for social justice and service to others.
Nobody understands teenagers more than teenagers
themselves. Their fears, desires and priorities! So, who better to step up and
help? Now is the time, peer to peer, to make a stand and lend a hand. We
believe that most people want to help, they just don't know how. It is the goal
of THT to make it easy by first educating teens on the homeless youth issue
many of their peers face, and then to motivate them to "Be The
Change" by coordinating meaningful opportunities that connect teen
volunteers with teens in need. With over 10,000 homeless teens in our community
the numbers seem staggering, but with a population of over 2 million and over 300,000
of our population being Teens, it's pretty easy to simplify the solution.

Kids are bullied for being different, for dressing poorly, for appearing withdrawn or as loners. Have you considered why they don't have nice clothes, who loves and supports them? Why are they withdrawn? These are the very kids that we need to support, not bully! Our biggest message to you today is STOP THE BULLYING! Live a day in their shoes and learn gratitude for what you have and give to those who have not. A smile, a kind word, friendship, an ear to listen, food, help with homework, your stylish hand me downs. Think of the difference you can make when you befriend instead of bully!
CONTACT US FOR OUR ANTI BULLYING PRESENTATION, currently at YMCA'S, Schools, Clubs & Church Groups. Help us make a change!
