Kinston Teens to TEDxTeen in NYC!

Kinston Teens is a youth-led organization, founded by 14 year-old Christopher Suggs, comprised of teens and young adults in our community aging from 12-25 who want to make our city a better place to live!

The mission of Kinston Teens is to serve and improve the Kinston community by promoting youth community service, leadership, and civic engagement, and forming and strengthening relationships between our city’s youth and our local government, schools, and other related organizations and entities.

We've been invited to attend TEDxTeen, an independently organized TED event focused on encouraging youth to find “simply irresistible” solutions to the complex issues we face every day.

This event will take place on Saturday, May 16 in New York City and Kinston Teens is ready to go! We plan on making this a memorable event for our organization, and are sure that this opportunity would further motivate our members into becoming productive citizens, and 21st century leaders – locally and globally.

For us to make this trip possible, we’re seeking the support of our friends, family, and wonderful community partners to assist us with the costs associated with travel, hotel accommodations, dining, and making this a fun and educational trip for our group.

We thank you in advance for your support! Contributions can also be made at, or by writing a check payable to 'Kinston Teens, Inc.' and mailing it to P.O. Box 2625, Kinston, NC 28502.
