Our Programs

All Teen Innovators sessions leverage near peer mentoring, where high achieving older teens spend time with curious young teens.

 

The older teens are positive influences — there to have fun while talking about everything from making friends to climate change. Over time, the young teens develop confidence, connection and community with the older teen mentors and their peers of the same age.
