Find out everything about TEEN LINE here

  • TEEN LINE was founded in 1980 to help adolescents address their problems through a confidential peer hotline and community outreach program.
  • TEEN LINE‘s educational materials include brochures on such topics as teen suicide, drug abuse, self-injury, eating disorders, growing up gay, and sexuality. We also publish a resource handbook – The Youth Yellow Pages – and youth-oriented videos on various subjects.
  • TEEN LINE is a sanctuary for the more than 10,000 youth each year that call the hotline. Toll-free in California, it’s a place to talk things out with another teen in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
  • TEEN LINE Consultation and Training involves specialized education on such topics as tolerance, growing up gay, teen suicide and substance abuse prevention. These services are offered to schools, adolescent-serving agencies, law enforcement and the media.
  • TEEN LINE‘s Community Outreach Program takes panels of volunteer youth directly into schools and youth groups to talk about topics pertinent to adolescents. More than 20,000 youth attend outreaches annually – learning about issues, and, most importantly, that whatever their problem, they are not alone.
  • TEEN LINE is designated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
