At Teen Advisors, we teach our students that enjoying life is not the opposite of having integrity. It is our goal to have fun, creative, unique, and innovative events that you absolutely can't find anywhere else. We ensure our programs and events are a safe haven from the negativity, pressure, and bullying that they encounter in their daily lives.
We provide unique programming and events where they can grow, learn, and make a real difference in the lives of their peers by addressing relevant youth issues and topics. We believe that as students navigate life during their formative years, it is crucial for them to have a positive community and support system for advice, accountability, encouragement, and hope.
Our staff train, teach, and mentor students, offer them support and encouragement, and develop curricula, fun events, and activities that engage students as they navigate adolescence. Our students are breaking stereotypes and defying expectations. Instead of teasing or ignoring underclassmen, our students create a culture of support, love, compassion, and accountability that is changing lives and changing schools!
OUR CORE VALUES
Sharing our lives for the benefit of others
We show passionate concern by reaching out to those inside and outside the organization by genuinely seeking opportunities to listen, support, and share our experiences
Providing an environment of acceptance where it is safe to be real
We build supportive relationships by providing opportunities for interaction that are fun, free from negative peer pressure, and full of encouragement.
Committing together to uphold our integrity
We keep each other lovingly accountable by agreeing to live a lifestyle of integrity and to abstain from drugs and alcohol. We also agree to turn ourselves in should we break our word and to lovingly confront others who may have broken theirs.
Equipping students to build character and lead by example
We spur character development through instruction like in classroom session trainings, and through intensive contact with leaders and situations that require leadership such as our classroom sessions and monthly events.
Depending on God and His Word as our ultimate model and foundation
We hold Jesus Christ as the example for everything we do, and that is plainly evident throughout our organization. Our classroom material, however, is not religious in nature, and we welcome students of different faiths and backgrounds.
