H2H-Teens received the 49ers Perry/Yonamine Unity Award for keeping families united through the

Parent Project ® and Teen “Success” program. 18 Teen and mentors from Mountain View and

Sunnyvale attended the game to receive the ward and watch a victory over the Falcons. “For many of

Parents enrolled in the current program are learning how important it is to show their children they love

them and ways to express it. Other sessions include subjects like drug use, gangs, and active

supervision (paying attention to such things as who their children are friends with, what they watch on

TV, who they are communicating with on their phones and how to monitor Facebook),

H2H-Teens offers workshops are offered every Tuesday at 6PM where the entire family is welcomed

and are learning skills that can improve family dynamics. While parents are learning effective skills,

teens are being mentored through cooking. They are gaining leadership skills and serving their families;

life-skills not normally expected from at-risk teens.
