Teaching Empowering Aspiring Motivating Saving
Project T.E.A.M.S. International is a Christian based program that is geared towards the assistance of troubled and at-risk youth. We are a group of Christians that are motivated by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Having partnered up with other local organizations, this program is designed to provide alternative solutions to the hard core problems that continue to plague our youth generation. This program is unique because our program is designed with the one-on-one mentoring element.
Youth violence is violence between adolescents or teens, including fighting, threatening, and bullying. Teen violence is becoming a more serious problem, involving more troubled teens, and leading to more teen deaths. Victims and perpetrators of teen violence are more often male than female, but all teenagers can be at risk. Teen violence ending in homicide is the second leading cause of deaths among adolescents and teenagers.
