>TNT is an early teen group for youth in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. We meet Tuesday nights for an hour and a half to share a meal together, play games, and have conversations about important issues. Occasionally we have fun guests drop by, and go on exciting fieldtrips.

Last month the Ballinger BAT group visited us to lead some activities and help our kids develop their own Spoken Word poems, After some free-writing and working together in small groups, each team got up to share their work with everyone else. The poems were very impressive, and it was great to see the kids come together as a group.

Last month an exciting dance group called The Good Foot visited to teach us some break-dance moves.
Last week TNT got to take an exciting fieldtrip to see a Sounders soccer match at Qwest field. Sadly, the Sounders didn’t win, but between the marching band, the excitement of being at a professional game, and the all-you-can-eat hot dogs, we all had a wonderful time.

TNT is jointly run by the Shoreline Family Support Center, Ballinger site staff, and Turning Point.
