Luna County TOP has been in the Deming Schools for approximately nine years. On average each participant completes 27 volunteer hours in the community. TOP's unique approach youth development includes: engaging curriculum, weekly peer group meetings, social emotional skill-building, positive adult guidance and support and opportunities for teens to sharpen their  newfound skills during community service learning.  


Teen Connection Project (TCP)


TCP achieves positive outcomes for youth by building a cohesive and supportive peer group that demonstrates the value of deep, caring relationships to teens and supports them in extending these connection skills to others in their families, school and communities. The program's primary goals are to: strengthen connection to others, support development of a positive sense of self, improve social and emotional learning and life skills, improve health, well-being and academic outcomes, and reduce risky behavior.
