Back to Serving Detroit’s Youth
Backpacks, new outfits, and excitement abounds as moms, dads, and school-aged children take part in September’s back-to-school season. Soon, the leaves will be turning and the school year will be in full swing.
Here at Teen HYPE we are taking a breath after a very busy spring and summer to reflect and prepare for the new year. We put on our outstanding stage play in April and May, and had a number of wonderful fundraising events, including our annual breakfast and an evening gala.
More than anything, we are excited for a new year of programming, fun, and education for the teens that come through our doors. Detroit’s young people are the reason why we exist. Already we are engaging our young people in activities that are helping them become the leaders they are called to be, such as our annual back to school drive, where our Peer Educators stuffed and distributed over 300 backpacks for students in need.
We know that this year will pose its own joys and challenges, and Teen HYPE is ready to embrace them all. We believe that the young people we serve are worth it and we look forward to helping them get adjusted to school and life accordingly.
