South Bay teens have created questions and recorded videos giving suggestions about how to cope with several life situations. These educational videos will be used by schools in virtual assemblies and counseling sessions. They are also available here online as resources for our entire community. Topic areas include: advice for parents, racial issues, coping with stress, identifying healthy friendships, preventing substance abuse, bullying and harassment, and COVID-19 life tips.

You are invited to join the Freedom4U Service Leadership Group!
We have programs in creative arts, life skills, leadership and service.
In Freedom4U's Service Leadership Program, teens can gain important leadership skills of writing, speaking and organizing while leading other teens in a service area they care about. The service area can be a project or cause that is benevolent to other people, the culture, to an organization or the environment. We have programs in creative arts, life skills, leadership and service.
Teens will learn to effectively communicate by working with others and by demonstrating patience, passion for charity work, and listening skills. They are surrounded by staff who have found their ever-growing love for charity work, and who are ready and willing to help guide them into making the community a better place. Our Service Leadership Group is made up of outstanding students from South Bay/Harbor Area High Schools and Middle Schools. We welcome new ideas of service activities from teens!
