We are teens helping teens where they are – on the streets. Peer Outreach Workers (POWs) act as a walking referral, approaching youth at various locations where teens tend to gather, sharing lifesaving resources and information. Through education and providing multiple options, teens are empowered to make healthy choices and access a variety of community agencies designed to assist.
We are on the street 2-3 days a week passing out hygiene items, condoms, food, and seasonal items such as bug spray, sunscreen, hats, gloves, hand warmers, etc. If you see us with our backpacks, come get the items you need!
Outreach happens at malls, transit centers and recreation centers, schools and various community events. Do you have an idea where teens may be hanging out? Email us.
