Ribbon cutting for GiveTeens20 office

Submitted By Kathy Laidlaw

office on Wednesday, May 28 in Fremont. GiveTeens20, a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation, encourages and equips students who desire guidance in choosing a direction after high school. The organization provides no-cost tools and resources, online and in the classroom, for career decisions.

ÒWe have been running on passion and excitement since 2008 out of a small home office and coffee shops around the city, trying to motivate and equip teens as they transition into adulthood,Ó shares Carrie Discar, Executive Director of GiveTeens20. ÒWe canÕt wait for everyone to see what we have been up to as we move into our new office! The biggest highlight of the evening is the grand unveiling of our newly redesigned website by Washington High School students.Ó

A ÔpassportÕ for the attendees will guide them to the various stations set-up around the building where they can learn more about GiveTeens20, see its impact, and meet some of the teens the organization has worked with.

In 2013, GiveTeens20 raised $2,500 for Brier Elementary SchoolÕs Mad Science program via a community yard sale. Learn what they have in store for their 2014 community event as they raise funds for another local elementary school enrichment program. Share your ideas for future events. Join them as they grow our community.

Founder and President Kathy Laidlaw states, ÒThis is an opportunity for the public and business community in Fremont to view the results GT20 is having in classrooms over the Bay Area and see the framework that will extend into new service areas.Ó
