CELEBRATION OF HOPE & CARING 2013
At our Celebration of Hope and Caring in March 2013, Teen Empowerment honored Boston Mayor Thomas Menino for his 20 years of service to the city. See our Hallelujah Menino video!.
Thanks to all who braved the snowy weather to join us for the evening at the Seaport Boston Hotel. Special thanks to our event co-chairs: Kate & Gerald Chertavian, Hubie & Kathy Jones, Charlie Rose & Carol Downs, and Ralph Martin.
Teen Empowerment is deeply grateful to everyone who supported us in celebrating our 20th anniversary at the TE@20 Showcase on May 30, 2013. We told TE's story through video clips, amazing speeches by young adults who once worked as youth organizers, and heartfelt speeches by current youth now following in their footsteps. Then we mixed in some dance, drama, and rap.
