The Tinian Teen Center is a drug-free incentives program that helps our youth make the right choices for a better future.
We’ve created a “safe haven” for teens to come, hang out, and enjoy themselves away from the drugs present in our small island community.
We are a grassroots organization that relies on willing volunteers and the generosity of donors to help us deliver our valuable programs to our youth.
We also offer a volunteer program to teens who want to gain experience working in a kitchen and running a business.
The Tinian Teen Center opened its doors to Tinian’s teens on June 3, 2016 in response to the growing drug problem in our small community.
We’re proud that our center was created by teens, for teens, and is the only teen center like it in Tinian and the region.
“I was a troubled teen doing drugs, smoking cigarettes, and drinking alcohol. Till I joined the Tinian Teen Center, I became a changed person and learned to become humble. I hung out with positive people with positive vibes and enjoyed the incentives.”
“Is it possible to have another family? YES, indeed. The Tinian Teen Center Is like our new home. I love the fact that teenagers can do something good and productive rather than doing bad habits that may possibly influence other youth. I am grateful to be a part of Tinian Teen Center.”
“What I gained from being a member is realizing that working together as a community could help a lot of teens out there in the world who are using drugs. The volunteering teens of Tinian keeps this place alive and without them there wouldn’t be a change.”
