From learning about pressing political topics and ways in which their financial futures can be more secure, to information on the local arts scene and commentary on pertinent social issues, investments in the programs and mission of Teen Urban News (TUN) have helped thousands of teens find their voice, and have provided a platform for teens to share this newly-discovered voice in these ever-shifting tides of change.
We are proud of the work we’ve done so far, and we are hopeful that, with a shared commitment to empowering our youth through knowledge, we will be able to build upon TUN’s existing strong foundation, and expand our reach to even more young men and women.
For us, we are not only dreaming of a future led by inspiring and well-informed individuals, we are actively trying to ensure that today’s youth are well-equipped to lead us into our shared tomorrow.
It is in this spirit that we invite you to join us in being a part of this process by considering a gift to help secure TUN’s future, so that we can continue to grow and expand our outreach to the teens who need it most.
Your investment in TUN is the cornerstone of our organization’s future, and will be the catalyst that launches us – and the teens we serve – into a brighter, more promising tomorrow.
In the coming months, TUN will be actively working to promote a number of events and programs designed to empower teens in our community. Our goals include:
- Producing an annual awards show, which will highlight the accomplishments of teens in our area;
- An after school program for teens during the school year;
- A variety of summer programs aimed at helping our youth explore their goals, and navigate the path to fulfilling their dreams.
We hope you will join us in leading TUN, the teens it serves, and the people who will benefit as a result of our mission – you and me! – into this next phase of growth and opportunity.
Thank you for your support!
