As Executive Director of Appalachian Teen Challenge, Inc. I am honored to lead our great staff in their efforts to provide the best care and training possible for our students. If you or someone you know, age 12 to 35, is seeking help to overcome life controlling problems, we can help. I hope you will enjoy your virtual tour of our various ministries and we look forward to serving you or that someone you know and love.  – Jim Nickels

The Appalachian Teen Challenge and its sister centers have each received honor accreditation acknowledgements from our national headquarters, Teen Challenge International USA. We believe God expects us to provide the best care and training possible to our students and we do so through various well-structured program components.

By taking a tour, you will see why the Appalachian Teen Challenge, including our adult male and female centers, adolescent girls center, and our crisis referral centers, are rated among the best in the nation.
