Mission Statement

The Friends of The CanTeen's sole purpose is to raise funds that will be used to support program costs for the Town of Cicero "CanTeen" Teen Center, located at 5962 Route 31 Cicero, New York.

Description

The CanTeen afterschool program takes a positive youth development approach that focuses on young people’s strengths and what they can contribute to their community rather than viewing them as "problems" to be solved. Positive youth development is an intentional process where youth are actively engaged in their development and are positively involved in their community. The Canteens’ motto, "it’s not a program, it’s a relationship", was penned by the youth that attend. The CanTeen is a drop-in center whose schedule of events and activities is planned and implemented by the very teens that attend the center. Facilitated and overseen by staff trained in the Search Institutes 40 Developmental Assets and Advancing Youth Development concepts and best practices, those activities may change rather frequently depending on the audience and time of the year.
