Help Teen Alliance of Oakland Park Support Students And Teachers


The Teen Alliance Project

The Teen Alliance Project in Oakland Park supports students and teachers.

The Teen Alliance Project is a non-profit organization founded by local Oakland Park resident Coby King. Its mission is to create relationships and programs in communities that lack resources in order to help teens achieve their dreams. Teen Alliance enable organizations to impact youth by providing opportunities that build character, civic engagement, personal awareness, and expands life experiences. We believe every youth regardless of their background, wants to be loved, can learn, deserves a second chance, and wants an opportunity to succeed.

About the Author

When Coby King was working for the Boys and Girls Club, he saw an enormous need for support and resources for African American boys growing up with single mother who lack the resources and time to ensure the success of their children by no fault of their own. The organization first started as a basketball team, then evolved over time to support youth ages 12 to 21 develop the life skills and tools need to transition into adulthood.
