The Center for Teen Empowerment, Inc. provides low-income, urban youth with the opportunity to find their voices, hone their understanding of the social problems they face, and the develop the skills they need to create change in their own lives and in their community. Working in Boston and Somerville, MA and Rochester, NY, TE employs youth ages 14 to 21 to implement police-youth dialogues, cultural celebrations and arts-based events, community meetings, and safe social events that engage thousands of youth and adults in community improvement efforts each year.
