A local youth-led organization is invited to a national conference, but it still needs the public’s help to get there.
This month Kinston Teens Inc. received an invitation to attend TEDxTeen in New York City. The youth empowerment event is aimed at helping teens find solutions to complex problems in their communities.
“I just feel that once we go to New York and come back, I think we’ll be like the song ‘Ain’t No Stopping Us Now,’ we’ll just be that motivated,” said Chris Suggs, Kinston Teens.
To raise money Kinston Teens Inc. has set a gofundme page. People can also drop of donations at the Self-Help and Greater Kinston Credit Unions. Checks should be made payable to “Kinston Teens.”
The local organization is hoping to raise $4,000 for travel and lodging costs.
TEDxTeen is scheduled for May 16th.
