What services do we provide?
The Services that we provide are simply to encourage and enhance our youth here in the City of Jersey with our Mayor Steven M. Fulop & our Health & Human Services Director Stacey Flanagan!!! The City of Jersey City Teen Mentoring/Teen Magazine Program gives our youth an opportunity to express their ideas and feelings about their everyday lives in a safe and nurturing environment. We encourage positivity and encourage the young people to seek and inspire good relationships and interactions in their environment. The Teen Magazine Literacy Program was initiated by Pastor John H. McReynolds over 10 years ago; it runs for 8 weeks and we have partnered with the City of Jersey City to expand impact and make a difference. Our program allows our youth to work as a team on their writing and communication skills in a safe environment. We give them a safe haven to produce a Magazine, illustrating how their voices are relevant and can serve as a vehicle for positive change in Jersey City. The work begins with a plain piece of paper and they are encouraged to use that canvas to formulate and compose their stories. Our teens express their views on a variety of topics, such as: bullying, suicide, teen pregnancy, becoming a police officer, a writer – the list goes on and on…..Most important, the program is FREE and accessible to our young residents!!!!!
Our City of Jersey City Teen Magazine Program salutes our graduates upon completion of the program at City Hall where they receive citations from the Honorable Steven M. Fulop and the Jersey City Municipal Council. Following the awards ceremony, the graduates and their guests are treated to a lunch sponsored by Applebee’s. It is our hope that this encouraging environment serves to empower and inspire our teens to empower themselves and others towards a Healthier Jersey City.
