Meet Chenelle (bottom middle). Chenelle came to Teens Inc to travel. Yet she struggled to get her paperwork completed, couldn’t coordinate her mom’s 24 hour work schedule to attend meetings, and she is often responsible for her younger brother’s pick up and care. Born in Jamaica, Chenelle came to the US two years ago. She came through the doors of Teens Inc in October. She said to me, “You know what I want to do? Start a support group for immigrant teens who have gone through the hard time I have experienced. To support one another.”
Fast forward almost four months later, Chenelle has organized a small group of immigrant teens in her Teens Immigrant Network Community (Teens INC) to do service, meet, talk, and listen, and have fun together.
