IFFP Teen Group Goals:

1.  To foster a continued bond among the IFFP teens through social connection, friendship and trust.

2. To explore social, ethical, moral, and religious issues/choices through engaging experiences and discussions and to examine what these issues mean to the teens personally as they move into young adulthood.

3. To consistently contribute to the broader community through active service preferably through activities they can do as a group.

4. To simply have fun together.

5. To stay connected to the larger IFFP group through participation in IFFP-wide events.
