The basis of Teens for Teens is sharing your special gifts to help others. Being a part of Teens for Teens has broadened my vision of the world and I have come to see how enthusiastic teenagers can impact the community in many ways. Teens for Teens has expanded my group of friends, to include students from other schools, who value helping others as much as I do. Other people matter. That is a principle worthy of pursuing. In pursuit of this principle, it is especially gratifying to have all my friends and family supporting me along the way.

Hi, my name is Coco Herz and this is my first year being a part of the Teens for Teens organization. Nothing makes me happier than making other people smile, so I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with this group. It is important that we all remember to give back to those in need, so I am looking forward to helping others this year!

I am very excited to officially be on the Teens for Teens team after assisting the team a little bit last year! My older brother, Mitchell Kelly, was the founder and president of TFT and I hope to continue and fulfill his mission to help others. Putting in the hard work on this team at every meeting leaves you satisfied knowing you are doing something selflessly for others. I am confident in this group that we will continue to accomplish greatly and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to be apart of it.

Teens for Teens has proven itself to be a fantastic tool in which a bunch of teens can make a difference in the lives of so many. It is my second year, and I am extremely proud to be a part of such a loving and caring group that truly strives to simply help people. I am so happy to have gotten the chance to work with everyone on the team, and people from the various groups and organizations we meet with to make the gala such a spectacular night. I believe in what we do at Teens for Teens and can only hope we inspire others to help out in their communities as well.

I am ecstatic to be joining the Teens for Teens team for my third year! The most important part of Teens for Teens for me is knowing that I have used my voice to help others who may not have a voice. When I was younger, I always looked up to people who made a difference in their community, and knowing that I now have the opportunity to make a difference in mine is so gratifying. I won't lie, Teens for Teens is a lot of work, but it is the most rewarding type of work there is. The satisfaction I get from knowing I changed someone's life is unimaginable.

Ever since I can remember, I have loved the feeling that helping people inflicts. Making others happy is even better than myself being happy. Through Teens for Teens, I have been fortunate enough to have an amazing opportunity to help others. For me, the best part is knowing that I am helping people around my age to whom I can greatly relate to. Teens for Teens strongly motivates me to be a better person, and I am extremely grateful to be able to say that I have helped people through Teens for Teens.

I’ve always had a desire to help people, and Teens for Teens provides an amazing opportunity for me to act on this desire. I really enjoy feeling like I’m making a difference in my community, and especially love that I am helping people my age, who happen to be less fortunate.
