Mission:
TeenForce is a social enterprise that is focused on solving America's youth employment crisis by fulfilling the hiring needs of businesses. As a self-sustaining non-profit organization, we help all teens (ages 14 – 20) with varying degrees of skill sets gain valuable work experience. We provide work readiness training, skills development, and job placement services. Our staffing agency model makes it convenient and cost-effective for employers to hire teens while generating revenue to support our activities.

Teens in our program gain confidence and skills, while improving adult/teen relationships. Teens become healthy, caring and responsible young adults who have important roles in the community.
