Global Teen Challenge

The first Teen Challenge center began in Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A., in 1958 and was founded by David Wilkerson, author of “THE CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE.” The work originated as a ministry to teenage street gangs and evolved into a residential program for drug addicts, alcoholics, and other troubled youth and adults. There are now approximately 1,000 ministries in more than 93 countries with approximately 25,000 students in residence.


Mission Statement

To provide youth, adults and families with an effective and comprehensive faith-based solution to life-controlling drug and alcohol problems in order to become productive members of society. By applying biblical principles, Teen Challenge endeavors to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.

The primary goal of the Global Teen Challenge program is to reverse the effects of substance abuse and life controlling addictions.

This includes:

  • The rebirth of the individual’s mental, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities.

  • A reduction in exposure to the risk of disease and premature death.

  • A possibility of the re-establishment of a viable family unit. 

  • Removal of the individual from a destructive life-style into a new ‘drug free’ environment.

  • Providing an opportunity for the individual to become a productive member of the community.

  • Demand reduction at the most important level-the grass root sales between drug user and dealer.


Studies verify what Global Teen Challenge does:

A University of Tennessee report concluded that:

  • over 60% of the program graduates continued their education;

  • over 70% indicated their current status as self supporting;

  • over 55% had been at their present job for more than a year;

  • over 87% did not require additional drug treatment;

  • over 65% were involved in community activities

  • over 90% reported good to excellent health. 

700 million people worldwide struggle with drugs or alcohol:
247 million abusing drugs and 457 abusing alcohol
