Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- When Teenshop, Inc. was founded on June 15, 1985, Elleanor Jean Hendley, an Emmy Award-winning former CBS 3 TV (Philadelphia) broadcast journalist, wanted to use her platform to empower girls of color.

"When I was growing up there were no women that I saw who looked like me in television news, so my dreams were limited. Through Teenshop, our girls are exposed to women achievers in diverse careers who encourage them to dream big and without limitations," said Hendley.

Thirty-five years later, the organization has more than 3,000 alumnae, a 100% college acceptance rate, and five chapters in three states - California (Los Angeles); New Jersey (Camden); and three chapters in Philadelphia, PA.

"Without Teenshop, I would not have had the courage to confidently tread into the uncertainties of life, follow my heart, and embrace all challenges that adulthood brings," said Teenshop alumna Brittany Paris, an MPH health care executive.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Teenshop had to shift its 35th-anniversary celebration and chapter programming from in-person gatherings to Zoom. Its virtual 35th Anniversary Gala, held in June, recognized Charisse Lillie, CEO, CRL Consulting, and Sharmain Matlock-Turner, CEO, Urban Affairs Coalition. The anniversary video can be found on the Teenshop1985 YouTube channel.

As Teenshop prepares for the new program year beginning September 5, it will remain online for the foreseeable future and expand its curriculum to include social justice issues. Hendley is also reaching beyond Teenshop to empower more girls as we navigate this new normal. In March she organized the Girls With Goals® Collaborative, an advocacy partnership of girl-focused organizations to include networking and sharing resources. "Now more than ever, all girls need access to programs with caring adults to support their emotional well-being and guidance towards achieving their goals," said Hendley.
