I volunteered with TWP for 2 years. During that time, I have witnessed how much of an impact this organization has made in the lives of Hampton Roads teens and young adults. They have a plethora of free, peer lead positive activities throughout the year. TWP is truly is a life changing organization that every teen should have the opportunity to be a part of. Excellent leadership and support staff contribute to making TWP one of the best non-profit organizations in Hampton Roads, hands down.

This non-profit organization is amazing! We are a peer led program. Which means we are for teens by teens! We discuss topics like; Abstinence, Safe Sex, STD/HIV Prevention, Dating Abuse & many other timely topics. These topics may be hard too discuss with some, but we do it in a fun, positive and understanding way for teens. I LOVE IT !

If they don't stop the noise, the blasting music and the parties, we're going to file a nuisance complaint. Not the way to get on the good side of your neighbors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Stop annoying the neighbors.
