This is Part 3 for families moving to North Texas to discover what local cities offer Teens. For this segment, the focus is on the City of Denton. Seeking opportunities for teens can be a challenge. It helps to know in advance what parents and teens can expect when making a decision where to move. Teens need advice and guidance when exploring while testing their wings. Understanding what teens want and need to help shape their future is an important part of the decision-making process. As mentioned in the previous two parts of this series, three good beginnings may include the following: 1) DISD (Denton Independent School District), 2) LISD (Lewisville Independent School District for Lewisville and Flower Mound), 2) Public Libraries, 3) Church and Ministry Groups/Organizations. One might compare the City of Denton to the Cities of Lewisville and Flower Mound:

 

What Can Lewisville, TX Offer Teenagers?

What Can Flower Mound, TX Offer Teenagers?

 

TEXAS WOMAN'S UNIVERSITY, DENTON, TEXAS

Texas Women's University (open to young men and women) knows the fashion world and how teens with a flare for creativity in fashion, merchandising, textiles, jewelry, and fabrics can learn all about the booming fashion industry. Students will learn how to sketch, sew, design, and interpret fashion trends while creating their own unique style. Fashion Camps for Juniors are held at the TWU campus June 12-16, 2017, Teen Fashion Design Camp June 19-23, 2017, and a second Junior Fashion Design Camp July 24-28, 2017. 

 

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS NIKE TENNIS CAMP

Programs are available for teens ages 13-18. Students will learn world-class tennis training from UNT  Tennis Coach, Sujay Lama. Sujay has worked across the United States, Europe, and Asia, and has "mentored eight student-athletes to 16 all-conference honors in the Sun Belt Conference and Conference USA leagues."

 

UNITED WAY

Volunteering is more than just giving up your time. It's an opportunity to give back to the community by participating in projects that benefit the community. Volunteers develop leadership skills while working in teams. By investing time in United Way teens can expect to know and understand the existence of social problems, why they exist, and what they can do to help find solutions.  

 

Good habits formed at youth make all the difference

Nina Hollander - San Antonio had tornados rip through their city but it didn't come through North Texas. It's a little more than 300 miles away. Looks like rain this morning in my area, but nothing to worry about. I hope Jerry Newman is doing well - he lives/works in San Antonio.

Beth Bromund - I like that there are different programs available for the different cities surrounding Flower Mound. In addition to regular college curriculums, it's important to know what's available for teens not ready for college or alternative programs and volunteer opportunities. 

Thanks for letting me know that you like this idea for informing buyers what's available for teens. I appreciate it very much!

Patricia, this series for families moving to your area with teenagers is a great idea. It can be hard to engage teens, so knowing pluses about various towns can only help.

Lottie Kendall - I think it's very important for prospective buyers/families to know what's available for teens. That transition between the neighborhood playground and the adult world is crucial to this stage of development. Every city has something different to offer. Depending on values and belief systems, parents can help guide students and support them in their career paths.

Patricia, I am really impressed with your series. I think it's so important for families to look into what's available for the children - teenagers included. I see the little ones considered a lot but, often times the teen activities can be overlooked. Wonderful post.

Amanda S. Davidson - I feel strongly that more emphasis needs to be on the teenagers. Most every city will have fun and educational opportunities for the little ones. But teens often suffer if there isn't an incentive to develop and grow beyond the neighborhood playground.

Thank you for agreeing there is a need!

Roy Kelley - I'm a firm believer teens can be more productive when there are other opportunities other than just a babysitter or cutting lawns for the neighbors.

Hi Patricia Feager - Your series is a thoughtful way to engage with families who are interested in cities like Denton, Lewisville, and Flower Mound. You understand that families chose areas that offer wonderful education and activites for their children.  Teenagers are sometimes left out of the mix. Very nice job!

Good morning, Patricia --- I agree with others who commented about the concept you developed into a series of posts.   It's interesting and quite valuable for parents of teenagers as well as the teens themselves.  

You're always thinking outside the box to attract the attention of your readers as well as those fortunate enough to work with you for their real estate needs.

So cool you take this line of interest on for teens Patricia Feager !! Teens these days have many advantages than I did growing up, yet extremely way more challenges than I ever contemplated over most of my life... I have done a few smart things in my time and one was when my kids were pre-teen I saw the writing on the wall and we moved across town to a better school district. Best decision I have probably ever made... Moms and Dads looking for a good home for their kids need help. This is a great conversation in that direction. Great read and share!
