Temple Harrisburg is Helping Transform Teens and Change Communities

Teen Outreach Program, or TOP, is a positive youth development program designed to build teen’s education success, life and leadership skills, and healthy behaviors and relationships so they are better able to navigate challenges during the teenage years. Temple Harrisburg staff has been chosen to train, implement and evaluate the implementation of the Wyman curriculum at sites identified by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. 

Over the duration of 3 years, Temple Harrisburg trainers will have the opportunity to impact teens, those who work with teens and give insight to those who may have an interest. Susan Washinger, a former TUH staff member, is also working on this grant as a consult to the project. The Teen Outreach Program is reaching teens locally, regionally, and even nationally.


With the belief that EVERY YOUNG PERSON:

  • Has the potential to succeed and lead, regardless of life circumstances.
  • Deserves to have connections with caring adults who empower them to share their voice and engage within their communities
  • Deserves equitable access to quality education, work and life experiences.

Our team can help teens build brighter futures and become tomorrow's leaders!
