JUMP is collaborating with local nonprofit Communities for Youth for the next Teen Takeover happening Friday April 19th, 2024, from 7-9pm.

Communities for Youth is helping to empower the youth in our community to tackle the ever-growing problem of mental health using Upstream Prevention by partnering directly with the youth in our community to prevent mental health crises before the occur.



• Parent Day Care: If parents aren’t comfortable leaving their teens, no problem! We have parent daycare where teens can check in their parents for the night. Speakers will be providing mini trainings for parents surrounding mental health knowledge and skills, plus other fun activities. Come hang with us in the lobby!
• Cozy Questions: In this space a panel of experts will be available to answer any mental health questions you may have anonymously. Relax, check in on your own mental health, and receive advice and guidance from experts who work with youth each day. Many teens have questions about their own or others' mental health, but they don't always know who to ask or how to trust the information. Get your questions answered in a comfortable environment!
• Creative Connections: Based on an award winning and researched approach called "Project Unlonely," this space will help teens create art that builds toward increasing deeper connections with others.
• Casual Connections: In this laid-back environment we will host games, friendship bracelet making, and connection conversations.
• Light Refreshments

If transportation is a concern, we have a brand-new offering: the City of Boise is providing free transportation for teens to JUMP for Teen Takeover. For more information and to reserve your spot on the bus:
