Beginning January of 2009, Atomic Brother will be hosting “Teen Strong: America,” a series of benefit concerts to raise money for teen and youth centers across the country. Our goal is to hold at least one benefit every other month, increasing in frequency until we have successfully reached out to the highest number of teen centers in every state. Each event will vary in size depending on how many teen centers are involved; there is no minimum or maximum, but we hope to involve at least 10 teen centers in each state.
Teen centers and youth programs provide a valuable service to teens, providing a safe, positive and friendly environment for teens to gather. These teen centers foster a sense of respect and responsibility, giving teens the tools to get through these tough transitional years.
To provide these services, teen centers depend on corporate and private donations, town funding and fund-raising efforts from within their communities. With “Teen Strong: America,” Atomic Brother is helping to raise money so that these important non-profits are able to continue providing their valuable services to the teens of America. Each teen center which attends the show will receive 100 tickets which they will sell for $10 each, whether to fellow teen center members or to friends and family—and 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be given directly back to the centers as a donation.
