We are The Teens Going for Gold Network
Who we are!
Founded in 2012, Teens Going for Gold Network is a development initiative that educates teenagers on ethics and values, inspires them to dream more, do more and become more and also empowers them to become financially self-reliant. The organization has positively affected approximately 4500 Nigerians between ages 15-25. At Teens Going for Gold Network, we believe that the value of your life should not be determined by the number of your years and we are building that consciousness in the Nigerian teenager
As the name implies, the vision of Teens Going for Gold Network is to see young people, who have imbibed the values of integrity, hardwork and discipline, making a much needed difference in their communities and the larger society. It was inspired to enable teenagers live purposeful anchored in Jesus Christ.
To achieve our vision, we will inspire, educate and empower teenagers and young persons to lead purposeful lives in Jesus Christ and become financially self reliant by the instrumentality of our annual conferences, quarterly publications, vocational training sessions and periodic online seminars.
