Madeline Rogero, Mayor

For Immediate Release
KnoxTeenSource.com offers info to Knox County Teens
Teen Empowerment Coalition
July 26, 2007 - Discussions between local youth agencies including United Way of Greater Knoxville, the Metropolitan Drug Commission, and the American Red Cross illustrated a need for a central directory of information for young people in the Knox County community. To fill this need, the Knox County Teen Empowerment Coalition launched KnoxTeenSource.com, a new online resource for Knoxville’s teens designed by Knoxville’s teens.

KnoxTeenSource.com“Knoxville is fortunate to have a wide variety of services and opportunities available for youth. The problem is they don’t know where to find the information when they need it. KnoxTeenSource.com addresses that need and makes finding information easy and interactive,” said Ben Landers, United Way of Greater Knoxville President/CEO.

This Web site provides information of interest to young people and will introduce news, discussion boards and polls to involve teens in the issues facing our community. Also available on the site will be employment, college admission and scholarship information, as well as volunteer opportunities. The site will also offer a “support” section that will link to social service organizations where visitors can find information on a number of topics, including improving the mental and physical well-being of teens.

“Knox County’s young people are the future leaders of this community. This Web site is a great way to get them interacting with one another and with current community leaders. This is a great initiative and illustrates yet another way that our local youth agencies are constantly contributing to our community,” said Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale.

For more information on KnoxTeenSource.com, call Leah Adinolfi at United Way of Greater Knoxville at 865-523-9131 x246 or visit www.unitedwayknox.org/teen_empowerment_coalition.html.
