Teens Act. Teens Act, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is dedicated to helping under-resourced high school students gain access to postsecondary education.
Teens Act empowers students by fostering a shift in mindset and motivating students to go to college through an interactive College Preparation Course, improving their academic abilities through a rigorous ACT Preparation Course, and supporting their parents through the Parents Program.
In conjunction with Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, Salt Lake Community College, and University of Utah, our program provides college students with the opportunity to mentor struggling high school students, which experience has equipped them to become leaders and teachers in the future.
We are very excited to serve over 100 under-served students and their parents at four high need high schools in both Utah and Salt Lake Counties in the 2013 school year. – less
