Teen Closet provides students with needed resources that they can obtain free of charge to help them succeed in school. It also creates a sense of community and caring at PHS. Students who use the Teen Closet appreciate that adults in the community care about them, and they often express a desire to volunteer or give back in some way.
Approximately 10-15 students visit the Teen Closet during our Friday, after school drop-ins. We've had roughly 200 students visit the closet since the first day of school.
