TNT YOUTH GROUP

TNT Youth Group serves teens 13 to 19 years old. Through workshops, seminars, activities, and one-on-one discussions, we provide instruction on relevant issues, strengthen friendships, and build courage and self-esteem that have often been damaged by the events and experiences of life. TNT Youth Group workshops focus on prevention and cover topics including success for teens, relationships, sexually transmitted diseases, physical abuse, alcohol abuse, and drug awareness. Through guest speakers, debates, and peer testimonials on the dangers of drugs and alcohol, TNT Youth Group motivates youth to make choices that give them a promising future. TNT Youth Group is a space where young people can express themselves, meet other people, and support and help each other reach their goals in life. We help young people develop into leaders by teaching them skills at seminars and workshops offered in the community.
