2010 TWP Gala Media Highlights:
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – TWP members Andre Love and DaKita Perry are interviewed by WAVY-TV, Host Nicole Livas before the 2010 TWP Gala with Al Roker.
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Al Roker, co-host of NBC’s Today Show, was in town advocating for the ” Teens with a Purpose” organization.
“I think one of the things that we forget is that kids can actually, given the right direction, solve their own problems, and Teens with a Purpose does that. It’s a faith-based organization that uses kids’ own words to inspire and empower other kids,” said Roker.
