PAL's Teen Leadership Group

Did you know that there are around 400 unaccompanied youths that are currently homeless in Nashua alone?

The PAL Teen Champions mentoring group wanted to do something to support their peers facing homelessness. For their MLK Day 2022 Community Service, they put together over 30 care packages, which will be donated to Stepping Stones for Nashua youth. The PAL teens included some encouraging messages for their peers.


Great conversation with our PAL Teen Leaders about planning a Youth Summit. LOTS of energy & awesome ideas in this room full of Changmakers!
