Five guidelines of

1. Believe in teenagers. Teenagers can lead today. We don't require adults.

2. Trust teenagers. We provide reliable, easy to access information and activation strategies, but teens decide for themselves what to do.

3. Celebrate teenagers. We think all measurable contributions from teens are valuable.

4. Respect teenagers. We understand that teenagers have diverse abilities and constraints.

5. Value teenagers. Our programs and products are free. We're not after teens' money; we want their passion, time and creativity.
