ENERGEIA FOR TEENS

 
General Information
Description of ServiceWas modeled after its adult leadership academy and launched in 2009. Molloy cares deeply about the development of ethical leadership and believes in the role and power of young adults in making a difference throughout Long Island communities. Long Island high school students ages 14-19 with 20-40 participants actively engaged each year, Energeia for Teens combines group discussion, skill-building exercises, and community service-learning experiences. It builds citizenship, promotes character development, enhances critical thinking and problem-solving capacity, and fosters respect among students of diverse backgrounds. By participating in an initiative hosted by a college, high school students are better prepared for college life. As teens learn about local challenges and are active in the development of solutions, they become change agents in their schools and neighborhoods. It is important that youth embrace Long Island and positively contribute to their communities as they continue in leadership roles throughout their adult lives. Energeia for Teens also provides an opportunity for students to make new friends from across Long Island. Students develop leadership abilities, identify topics of mutual interest and concern, and translate them into thoughtful activities through local community service projects. Regional civic engagement can be life changing -- providing support and a sense of purpose, connection and contribution for young people. Meetings are held at the Molloy Suffolk Center, 7180 Republic Airport, off of Rte. 110 in East Farmingdale 11735. Call for more detailed information.
