It's clear that we still have some work to do, and here is where you can help. Franklin County Teen Institute is a collaboration between Franklin County schools, agencies, and youth. We work to create a safe and fun community environment bringing youth from all over Franklin County together to learn about leadership skills and community-focused prevention. It is our goal to empower EVERY teen to lead healthy, substance free lifestyles. In order to make this an ongoing program we need our community's assistance with fundraising to make this awesome program a sustainable reality for our youth. Together WE can create healther schools and communities.
