TLM believes that by engaging young people in their communities today, we can produce a generation of leaders who will be socially conscious, dedicated to service, and become role models for others.
The TLM intern, ages 15-19, gain much more than a summer paycheck; they develop job and leadership skills and experience a career exploration, while our nonprofit partners receive extra support in delivering needed services to our communities.
The interests and skills of each teen is matched with the needs of one of our partnering nonprofit organizations. TLM interns work with the homeless, care for the environment, gain hands-on experience in law, medical, health and human services.
Teens Like Me aim to become a leading force in teen mentorships, and
