Where It Started

The vision of Impact Teens Goldsboro was created, in August 2016. And Impact Teens Goldsboro was finally announced in December 2016. Specifically, because teens across our city have limited opportunities.

That’s why, 17-year-old, Ja’Shawn Faire and 19-year-old, Khalil J. Cobb founded Impact Teens Goldsboro in December of 2016. Well known in their community and many churches involving the youth, the two brothers’ created Impact Teens Goldsboro to do more for their city by creating events for youth to be a part of, providing community service events youth can be active, and also volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, The Soup Kitchen, etc.

With the population of about 36,000, Goldsboro, North Carolina with a crime rate of 76 percent per one thousand resident, Goldsboro has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes – from the smallest towns to the largest cities. A majority of our teens are involved in the 76 percent crime rate in our city, and we are here to lower the teen crime rate. 

In the little time, they’ve been founded, Impact Teens Goldsboro has been active, the organization has worked hard to involve the youth in the community in the efforts to not only better our community but also make a difference in our city. Impact Teens Goldsboro has been working hard to provide meetings involving various different mentors around the United States, providing leadership opportunities, hosting exciting and interesting events to our youth, leading community service events, collaborating with other organizations, and also volunteering in our community. 

Impact Teens Goldsboro is grateful for the various support they’ve received from churches, community leaders, city officials, and other organizations in such a short amount of time. We look forward to continuing to make a great impact in our city.

I love Impact Teens Goldsboro because it’s led by teens for teens. Goldsboro has a bad reputation, and as the next generation, ITG is working hard to make changes. Members of ITG are receiving leadership and people skills, as well as community service experience. I’m eager to continue making an impact on our city.
