WHO WE ARE
Purpose is to improve and enhance the lives of at-risk youth, now and in the future, by helping them to develop teamwork skills, trust, self-value and respect for others. Vision is to serve at-risk youth across the nation and around the globe. Strategy: The Vision of TRAC will be established and accomplished through a collaboration of state services division, willing people with hearts for troubled teens, and creative fund-raising projects and grant writing.
Every year, abused teens are put into the foster care system or worse – end up on the streets as part of our homeless population. At TRAC Norman, we provide hope through camping and mentoring programs designed especially for these youth. The programs of TRAC take into account the issues surrounding adolescence, but more importantly the issues that surround youth who have been abused, abandoned and neglected and who many times reside in foster care. One of the core principles of Teen Reach is to provide a non-judgmental experience. We strive to achieve this at our two gender-specific camps each summer. Adults 20 and over can be a part of this life-changing camp by filling out an application on our website.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
TRAC NORMAN MISSION STATEMENT
Providing HOPE and a FUTURE by developing single gender camps and mentoring programs designed for abused, abandoned and neglected youth, ages 12-17, usually residing in foster care. The Success of TEEN REACH is defined by life change; Not only in the youth we serve, but in the dedicated individuals who volunteer at each camp. Those who are involved in TRAC believe in God’s Sovereign Word which moves us to represent Christ to the youth we serve. We have dedicated ourselves to making each child feel safe and special. Our goal is to “provide hope” to the fatherless as noted in Jeremiah 29:11 and Isaiah 40:30 – 31a.
