Mission Statement

The Sumner Teen Center is an innovative nonprofit agency providing a FREE, safe, nurturing community for high school teenagers in Sumner County, Tennessee. Our Center’s goal is to support parents and join with schools, businesses and professionals in community to encourage the transition of our teenagers into successful adults.

Description

We lead the next generation of warriors, and the battle they face is the battle of the mind!
Growing trends in teen homelessness, unemployment, mental health struggles and even suicide have prompted us to study the root of the problem. Most of the time, it is a sense of hopelessness. Too many teens do not see their full potential. They are bullied and even programmed by society to think that they have no worth. When it gets really bad, they do not have the brain development to see the possibility of hope.

We've learned that hope is a sense of self, safety and community. This is where our warrior is found! In 2020 we are helping teens to find their inner warrior. WAR PAINT Whether for battle or celebration, the painted face of the warrior is unique to the individual. STC uses art as a means of self-expression, healing and fun. ARMOR The warrior's armor is designed for battle. It protects the warrior's weakest parts. The armor we build is that of confidence, skills and wit. TRIBE A warrior does not go into battle alone. He is supported by his tribe. They find a tribe here at STC. We are artists, gamers, actors, athletes and activists.
Be a part of the movement to change the way we teach the next generation...the generation that will take care of us one of these days!
