How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference

PARACHUTES TEEN CLUB & RESOURCE CENTER -
Located on Lake Otis Parkway in Anchorage, Alaska, Parachutes is a drop-in center for teens, ages thirteen to eighteen. Parachutes has various activities such as video games, pool, computers, ping-pong, a small café, special events and most importantly - caring adult volunteers who want to share their lives with teens.

Parachutes is a place where kids can feel safe from the hardships of life. The teens that stop in come from diverse backgrounds and ethnicity, but the common thread with many is that they have an unstable or unhealthy home environment.

Through relationships, Parachutes demonstrates the unconditional love of Jesus to teenagers by seeking to minister to their physical, social and spiritual needs.

Activities at Parachutes are motivated by a love for Jesus Christ. That can include giving teens a safe, social space monitored by adults or can mean providing a refuge when a teen needs to escape from their home environment for a couple hours. For teens who are distrustful of adults, the volunteers at Parachutes provide a consistent and safe presence and are willing to help teens sort through life issues. Many teens need to complete school and on-site referrals and tutoring help them do that. Teens lacking the skills needed to get and keep a job can apply to the Job Training Program where they will learn to acquire and hold a job in the real world.

At Parachutes we welcome teens of all spiritual backgrounds and beliefs and are willing to discuss our belief in Jesus with anyone.

Parachutes opened in April 2003. Since opening, we have seen more than 180,000 teen visits.
