Teen ATTITUDE gave Emily the opportunity to meet young women her own age. It was her only time with peers who didn’t have developmental disabilities. Teen Attitude helped her find friends during a difficult time of transition. The young women at Teen Attitude learned that they have a lot in common despite different levels of abilities. -- from her sister, Amy

Teen ATTITUDE is a peer to peer program that pairs teen girls with and without disabilities for mutual support and friendship at the Pieters Family Life Center. ATTITUDE stands for: Awareness Teamwork Trusting Independence Together Understanding Differences for Empowerment.
As a peer to peer social group for teenage girls, we energize the CAPABILITIES of all participants by providing activities that encourage fun and friendship. In a nurturing environment we support and assist one another with unleashing each other’s highest potential.
