As an outsider who has been aware of First Glance, I am amazed at the dedication of the staff and the love they have for these teens. Many teens who would not otherwise have a positive place to spend time, are finding many reasons to go to First Glance. The teen mom program is filling in the gap where there has been a need. Tutoring teens, those at risk, and others adds to the service environment. And of course, the staff, at low or no salaries are so dedicated and know how to provide a fun environment within defined boundaries.

I've been a teacher in a public high school in the area for the past ten years and seen so many at-risk students who can benefit greatly from the work of First Glance. The volunteers make a huge investment in these kids and change the course of their lives in many cases. The local community is blessed to have this organization working to support its young people.

First Glance is a vital ministry for the teens in the Akron/ Kenmore community. Over the years, growing up in the Kenmore area, I have seen the culture and environment of this area change. First Glance provides a haven – safe place – where teens can meet, socialize with other teens in a supervised area, keeping them off the dangerous streets. The First Glance leaders work closely with area churches providing the teens a solid moral structure for their lives – many of these teens have no structure or guidance from their homes at all. I have watch this ministry grow for the past several years as my daughter has been a youth leader there. The dedication of the leaders is truly amazing. Their hearts ache for the students they become involved with. They become wonderful role models for the teens and show these teens the true love of God. Many teens have totally redirected their lives because of the guidance of the First Glance Ministry. -Diane Corr

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching my daughter grow as a leader there. Her heart is poured into those teenagers and I see how much they need good examples and role models like her in their lives.

I have been going to first glance since i was in the 6th grade. now im in 9th and theres has been alot of changes since then. they bought the neighbors office and changed it into a huge extension for first glance. there pizza & pop is pretty cheap, you can get the "special" which is 2 pieces of pizza and a can of pop for only 1.25! if you ask me, first glance is what got me to be not shy to talk to other people. this is the best teen center that has ever existed.

This program has a great outreach to the children in it's community. They are available to kids that are being forgotten. The teen mom program helps give these young girls support and answers that they may not receive. When the doors first opened the kids poured in and found a great place to hang out and stay off of the streets. They provide a place to learn morales, and have fun!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing pictures of all the children enjoying the facility and being apart of the classes that are given there.
