About the Program
“I Am Me”

Teens are facing problems that are universal, affecting them at every socioeconomic level and in every community. Even in supportive environments, teenagers face confusion and uncertainty in life.

The Tilly’s Life Center (TLC) “I Am Me” program empowers teens by teaching life skills that build confidence, inspire compassion, and encourage them to pursue their dreams.

Using experiential learning, including journal writing, open discussions, and activities, our classes promote self discovery and cover relevant topics in a safe and caring environment.

Some topics include:

iconForgiving and Giving


iconTransitioning from being Dependent on Hospital Care




iconDrugs and Alcohol






iconMotivation and Purpose





We like to believe that we are the

GPS from a Negative World to a Positive World.
