Being aware of the correlation between a lack of social services, recreational activities, and crime, Teens Against Crime pursues creative ways to broaden the appeal and usefulness of its current program. After school services such as tutorial services, individual and family counseling, homework assistance, recreational activities and workshops, peer counseling and summer programs are designed and implemented to challenge and broaden the minds and skill-set of Teens Against Crimes participants.
Our mission is to utilize the resources we have in order reduce the number of at-risk youth, empowering them with the basic skills they need in order to be productive men and women in today’s society.
In addition to our ability to provide services and educational seminars we have undertaken
an internship/leadership program whereby we employ/train youth and provide a stipend,
carfare and underwrite the cost of books and school supplies. We expose them to
governmental agencies/experiences by having them attend conferences in Albany and
volunteering in local governmental offices. We provide employment referral and gainful employment with
our member agencies for at risk young adults in our community. We have exposed our
youth to education, employment and governmental procedures and protocols.
