ONE TEEN FOR EVERY TEAM© is how Harkins Leadership Group partners with our clients to give back to some amazing lives in our community.


For every team we coach, consult, or train, we will invest in the life of a teen close to aging out of the foster care system in Texas. That investment includes building relationship on a foundation of trust, assessing their natural talents, ongoing coaching to grow those talents into strengths, and helping them become a VIP. A Very Important Person? Yes. But more. A person with a strong and sure Voice, Identity, and Purpose.

Approximately 1200 youth age out of the Texas foster care system each year.


It means that in Texas alone, each year 1200 young people are released into adulthood without family.

When we began to think of the personal impact that has on their identity alone, it was overwhelming.
But looking even further into the need for (and lack of) trusted relationships and supportive community, we began to see a need that we had to step into.

We have found a way, one teen at a time, to make a difference.
We step into creating, or assisting, their supportive community.
We build relationships on foundations of trust.
We have fun together, adventuring into the discovery of their amazing strengths, goals, and purposes.
We remain a relational and coaching support for their journey ahead.

As our client, not only do you get to SHARE in the joy of making these significant differences…
you are the REASON we can make these differences.

From every life impacted…ours and theirs,
Thank you!
