Empowering Successful Teens through Education, Awareness & Mentoring (E.S.T.E.A.M.) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raise awareness and educate communities about teens who are faced with unfair challenges of abuse and neglect in their lives.  Through a heightened awareness of these at-risk teens, E.S.T.E.A.M. aims to reach out and collaborate with communities in offering support with the hope of empowering them to grow into happy, successful adults.

We at E.S.T.E.A.M. believe that every teen has the potential for greatness regardless of their parental circumstances. They only need to believe they are valuable and can attain their dreams. We hope by checking in on this website and sharing thoughts and ideas, all community members (that’s you) will be able to broaden their understanding of the unique need of these teens and apply solid solutions to help.

To think of images of kids beat down, used or thrown away should break our hearts. What a terrible feeling to be unwanted, not important enough to be asked what you might be thinking or feeling. No one to worry if you are scared or lonely…offer you safety without strings. We recycle our trash, but consider an unwanted teen unsalvageable. Why? They are our poets, artists, musicians, scholars, athletes, chemists, & thespians. They are worth more than the sky. They are all our children. Let’s embrace them.
