The Center for Teen Empowerment empowers
youth and adults as agents of positive individual, institutional, and social
change. We envision a world in which youth, including those of highest

achieve justice and peace.
Since 1992, TE has engaged young people as leaders of efforts to turn
their peers away from violence, gangs, and drugs, and toward positive community
