KidsPeace – The National Center for Kids Overcoming Crisis – TeenCentral.net
TeenCentral.Net is a unique Web site developed by KidsPeace. The site connects teens to other teens from around the country and throughout the world and to a wealth of problem-solving resources just for kids. TeenCentral.Net is a safe place for teens to tell their story and read stories from other kids who relate to the same feelings; hear from peers who respond with support, encouragement and direction; receive feedback from professionals who can offer guidance in making decisions; find books, movies, music, hotline numbers and organizations that can help; and develop confidence in their own abilities and personal worth. Designed to work interactively, the Web site helps teens identify personal problems, determines their emotional and physical state and provides a professional perspective. Using new software provided through a development partnership with Microsoft, the site builds a profile of the user and links the teen to individually selected stories by other teens and to stories from famous entertainers, sports stars and other celebrities who’ve been through some of the same situations and have come out the other side. TeenCentral.Net was named one of the six most innovative and constructive uses of Microsoft software in 1999, Yahoo! named TeenCentral.Net the best teen site on the Internet and USA Today called TeenCentral.Net a best bet for educators. TeenCentral.Net really is a place where teens can log on and work it out!
