Youth are bombarded with information that assists in molding self-perception, awareness and perspective. Often these influencing forces do not have the overall emotional, physical, spiritual and social well-being of kids in mind. Teen Straight Talk,Inc shares truth in a compassionate and straight forward way that never waivers from the intrinsic value and worth of every individual. People that are served by Teen Straight Talk are empowered with knowledge to make healthy choices that solidify present perspective, future outlook and transformation from the past. I feel very fortunate to have been afforded the opportunity to not only work with young people but to be enlightened and uplifted by the lessons and relationships forged with Teen Straight Talk, Inc.

I have to say that serving teenagers is not an easy task. I have not experience anything more powerful and impactful than Teen Straight Talk. Trust me,I've tried everything I know to get through to teens. I attended an event where the young teenagers were expressing themselves and you could see that the information they received was change their lives forever. The light bulb came on!!!Sometimes it only takes a moment like this to change the course of lives. I applaud Ms.Allen and her team who have dedicated their lives to speaking the truth to teens and empowering them with tools that will help them make informed decisions. I will do all I can to spread the news. This is a hidden gem that more people need to know about!

The Great!

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

Watching neighborhood teens girls change how they see themselves. They were told in their session that they were as precious as the china tea cups we drank from, not styrofoam cups! They've never forgotten that!!!!

Give them funding to help market their services and build their curriculum so that more people can have access to it.

Create a larger campaign platform for their marketing and live event production. In essence, more teens will be empowered with information that will literally change their lives.

Ways to make it better...

It was a three day event...so much great info!!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finding staff members that are as dedicated as the one's I witnessed.

One thing I'd also say is that...

You can tell the people are committed and their passion comes from a genuine place. Teenagers are smart. They pick up on things and when they feel a safe place, they open up. I saw some of the hardest teens melt in the presence of love. Amazing!

I started working with teen straight talk as a volunteer mentor. I enjoyed helping out with the presentations, especially the realistic activities that spoke volumes to the teens! I remember helping with an activity that symbolized how when you have multiple partners before marriage, you give part of your heart away, and when you meet your spouse, there's hardly anything left to give him/her. I remember the silence of the room, which to me symbolized that the teens "got it". I enjoyed working with the team. Each member brought their own uniqueness, passion, and experiences, which made the team very diverse and more effective. I regret that there were few men mentors. I think the male teens could have benefitted more from seeing, hearing, and interacting men mentors. I do however realize that the recruit for positive male mentors is a tough task.

Teen straight was presented to me when I was a teenager. I committed to the abstinence pledge when I was 19, and met I wonderful mentors! Teen Straight talk served as an educational program for me as well as an avenue for spiritual growth. In committing to my pledge, I was able to mentor younger teens in a special way. I cherish the experience that Teen Straight Talk has afforded me. I can sincerely say that TST played a major role in life changing experiences that I have encountered.
