To empower teens to achieve excellence in community, college, and career.
In 1981, Indiana philanthropist Gene Glick founded what was then called the Pro 100 program with a simple idea – to provide teens with a summer job that would teach them the importance of self-discipline, a hard day’s work, and giving back to the community. After operating for 33 years under the administration of the Children’s Bureau, TeenWorks was established in 2013 as an independent IRS 501(c)3 organization with a new brand and the intention of increasing the organization’s capacity to serve a greater number of teens. Today, TeenWorks continues this founding vision through our Summer, Pro, and Alumni Services programs.
