Imagine if there were a store where all the items on the shelves were free—where you could get that toaster you’ve been needing, or a desk for your child, or a business suit, all without handing over a dime. Sounds unlikely, right? Well, TUC says, you can indeed go shopping without forking over any of your hard-earned cash, at least during February when we hold our special event.
Empowering Young People To Become Confident, Connected, and Self-sufficient. The empowerment workshop is based on the premise that our thoughts and beliefs mold the conditions in our life. Our workshop promotes changes in perspectives that will help you create your life as you most want it.

The Youth Explosion Seminar and Cypher Will Focus on Mental Health and Breaking Down the Stigmas Therein.
With the rise of COVID-19, we have seen the rise of mental health cases amongst our youth!
Teens Under Construction, Inc.'s goal is to address the realities of mental health and how one should not be ashamed or ostracized for going through this. We believe that it is important for everyone in our community to be equipped with understanding the effects of trauma and the societal pressures on mental health.
In the T.U.C Youth Explosion Seminar and Cypher, our youth will engage in conversation and activities such as our hip-hop cypher competition where they will be able to share their perceptions of mental health.
