TeenLink Program

TeenLink Planting Flowers 

TeenLink is a program that is designed to provide students with diverse abilities the opportunity to develop the skills for independent living. The TeenLink program has several components designed to prepare the students for the demands of adult life and help them reach their highest levels of independence.

Our TeenLink facility is conveniently located in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, adjacent to the McCall Middle School and is available for school districts and life skills groups to rent.

 

Summer Programs

Since 2012, TeenLink Summer Programming has helped teenagers with diverse abilities prepare for their next steps; whether it’s getting ready for the workforce, college, or living independently.  In summer 2020, Hope Enterprises is partnering with the UPMC Pediatric Rehabilitation Center and the Autism Collaborative Centers of Excellence to host programs and wellness groups for ages 8-21.  A myriad of civic partnerships are getting involved to introduce youth and young adults to our local community. TeenLink Summer Programming provides youth and young adults with activity-based approaches to building and increasing self-confidence, social skills, and independence.
