PPL’s Teen Services Department strives to create programs that are teen interest driven, facilitate meaningful relationships, and expose youth to learning opportunities. Programs will range in topic, length, and frequency to meet the needs of the youth we serve.
Teen Squad programs are recurring classes that focus on work-readiness, 21st Century skill development, and interest exploration for teens. Through these competency based programs, Teen Services staff work one-on-one with teens to identify their learning goals, develop learning plans, and cultivate accountability.
