"Too busy" you say? These experiences are worth making time for — life-changing opportunities that lead to a sense of belonging and create bonds that will last a lifetime.

Teen says “No Way”! Some things in life are non-negotiable. Consider the “5 Time Try” — have your teen try a program at least 5 times before expressing an opinion about it. They don’t know what they are rejecting until they have given it a meaningful try (going once or twice is often not enough).

Teen says "Don’t know anyone going!" These groups have great teens already involved who will personally reach out to your teen. Just let them know you’d like this! Also, if you make it non-negotiable, they might be motivated to find friends to go with them!

This has been the key to success for many teens who are now involved!
