Teen Challenge is a successful program that was founded more than 50 years ago in New York by David Wilkerson and since then has spread to more than 115 countries around the world. Presently, there is a network of 1200 centers that help children, teens, women and men, and their families.

Teen Challenge has been active in Ukraine since 1992, holding conferences, organizing training sessions and summer camps for the staff and volunteers of rehabilitation programs, facilitating various projects that help addicts.

Over the years, a group of young people has formed in Ukraine who, having gone through their own difficult experience of overcoming addictions, have been working with people in churches and on the streets, and who made a decision to help people find ways to free themselves from addictions, restore their lives and their families.

In 2008, having visited some of the Teen Challenge centers in Europe, they started Teen Challenge program in Ukraine.

Presently, we have more than 25 Coffee House support groups. Also, we joined efforts with more than 30 rehabilitation centers and churches throughout Ukraine.

Teen Challenge believes that the Good News of the Gospel is for ALL. Thanks to the availability of ministries such as rehabilitation centers, the Coffee House groups and prevention programs, Teen Challenge offers hope for a new, free of any kind of addiction, life.
