By supporting Teen Health Connection, you help us improve the health of adolescents in our community. We rely on the generous contributions of individual donors to provide many vital services to teens and families in our community. In addition, we are grateful for the funding and support we receive from corporations and charitable foundations in the form of grant funds, sponsorships and in-kind donations. We are proud to be a partner agency of the United Way of Central Carolinas.
Many of our services would not be possible without contributions of our generous supporters. If you would like to support our mission and make a difference in the life of a local teen, please click the icon below to make a contribution.

Stand Up and Get Down for Teens
Stand Up and Get Down for Teens is our signature event and annual fundraiser. The 2015 event was Saturday evening, September 19, 2015 at The Fillmore. We started the night with dinner and a comedy performance from Last Comic Standing Finalist, Rocky Laporte, followed by a ceremony honoring the 2015 recipient of the Dr. John G. Johnston Award, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent, Ann Clark. The evening concluded with music from local band, Too Much Sylvia, allowing everyone to celebrate and Get Down for Teens. This signature event perfectly captured our founders' vision.
