“I was so frustrated. My parents always wanted to go everywhere with me instead of letting me go on my own. But after I took a Teenpower workshop, they were able to trust that I now have the skills to protect myself. Thanks to the skills Kidpower taught me, I now go out with friends and am actually looking for a job! And, now, my parents worry a lot less! My special thanks to people like you who support this great program.”
– 17-year-old Riley, San Francisco, California
