Youth Resources' TEENPOWER program is a jam-packed conference designed to empower youth to lead drug-free lifestyles while engaging them in leadership development and community service.

Your student can expect to do all of the following:

  • Have tons of fun during large- and small-group activities
  • Engage in life-changing conversations with their peers about what really matters to them
  • Participate in training that motivates them to serve as catalysts for positive change in their own lives and in their communities
  • Plan a prevention service project to complete at their school or in the community
TEENPOWER participants also have the opportunity to build relationships with members of the all-volunteer Youth, College and Adult Staffs who serve as positive role models at TEENPOWER and after the conference ends.

TEENPOWER is the only youth substance abuse prevention conference of its kind in southwestern Indiana. For more information, visit

  • Our participant capacity at TEENPOWER is typically met within the first evening registration opens.
  • Please plan to register AT 6pm on the appropriate night to give your student the best opportunity to secure a spot, but please know and prepare ahead of time for the potential that your student will be on the waiting list.

  • We will work until the last possible moment prior to TEENPOWER to accommodate as many students as possible.
