We are so humbled by all those who came out to support Teen Empowerment through our Headshots For Empowerment fundraising event. Since 2003, Teen Empowerment has employed hundreds of Rochester youth who have engaged thousands of their peers, adults, and community leaders in youth-led initiatives.You all blew us away with your dedication to your careers, ambition for new endeavors, and passion for making Rochester the greatest it can be! Thank you again to our sponsors, Haigh Wealth Management Group and Haven Hair Salon, and ALL those who participated! We hope your new headshots bring you SO much success and prosperity. Special thanks to Shawn Brown, Erin Julian and Lauren Gallina for helping make this event run so smoothly and for all you do for our wonderful community!
Here are photos from TE's Let's Be Friends event, at which the youth of TE performed spoken word pieces they had written themselves. We were blown away by the courage, skill and depth these students demonstrated in the poetry and lyrics they prepared and performed for a room full of adults. We could not be happier to have the $2000 we helped raise go towards supporting them in their future endeavors.
