Teen Support Coalition (TSC)/Youth Community Project (YCP)

The TSC / Youth Community Project is dedicated to providing youth-created spaces, where young people can pursue their healthy desires for socializing, creative expression, self-determination, and collective empowerment. 10 serve on the “youth board”, and events have hosted up to 300 teens. Primarily funded by private donations from individual donors, with a few private foundation grants. TSC/YCP is concerned with the fact that In Carrboro/Chapel Hill there seems to be a lack of facilities for gathering and recreational activity for teenagers unless they engage in sports. With this problem in mind, TSC/YCP is attempting to provide safe, youth-run (adult-supervised) spaces around the community where teens can spend leisure time inexpensively, and socialize through activities such as dances and performances, youth created workshops, and other forms of creative expression. In order to reach out to the teen population, they utilize a teen board that provides the energy, ideas, and direction of the organization. They have been granted occasional use of the space under the post office on Franklin St. (Street Scene) for events and workshops, but hope to create a permanent large, street level, storefront youth cafe/cultural center in Carrboro in the near future.
