I’ve gained many relationships from coming to the CanTeen. I have many adults in my life that I trust because of the CanTeen. I’ve made many friendships with kids younger and older. One relationship I’ve had for 4 years. The CanTeen is my second home.
The CanTeen means a place to hang out, meet new and nice people. Stretch your legs in activities that you didn’t even know you were interested in. A place that is like home. With wonderful adults who were more like family than anyone else. A place where you could belong when you don’t fit in anywhere else. Maybe you could even find your best friend there. I’m so happy they are still a place for teens in need and just a place to make their lives better. I wish you the best on many more years of amazing work and time.
I have built a lot of relationships over the 3 years that I have been here. Mrs. Toni has taught me how to open up. I was a quiet shy type of person when I first came here, and I have made a lot of friends. I’m not really the type of person to open up to people and I truly feel safe with talking to the adults here. The CanTeen is my second home, it’s the one place where I truly feel safe & at home.
Well I know for a fact that the CanTeen has save teen lives, I love this place.
The types of relationships I’ve made here are long lasting and built a foundation of bonding and things we have in common with each other.
Since coming to the CanTeen I have built healthy, positive and trustworthy relationships. I have also gained many peer’s respect that I normally wouldn’t have received outside of the classroom.
