Volunteers Design a New Website Just For Teens

(WVLT) - A new resource for Knoxville's teens will be available online as KnoxTeenSource.com, a collaborative project of the Knox County Teen Empowerment Coalition.

The concept for the project grew out of discussions among local youth serving agencies, including United Way of Greater Knoxville, Metropolitan Drug Commission, and American Red Cross, that pointed to the need for a central directory or "clearinghouse" of information for young people in the Knoxville community.

Designed by teens for teens, the site was created to provide youth with access to information of interest to young people and promises to include news, discussion boards and polls to involve teens in the issues facing our community.

For more information, you can call Leah Adinolfi at United Way of Greater Knoxville at 865-523-9131, or you can click here.
