Paul Russo Named to Center for Teen Empowerment Board of Directors

Paul Russo, Tax Manager at tonneson + co, has been named to the Board of Directors of The Center for Teen Empowerment, Inc.

Teen Empowerment empowers youth and adults as agents of positive individual, institutional, and social change. Each year, they employ 125 urban youth who plan and implement initiatives that involve more than 6,000 youth and adults in Boston and Somerville, MA and in Rochester, NY. Since 1992, Teen Empowerment has worked to promote tolerance and understanding and increase equity in communities and schools through youth leadership. Their work has touched the lives of more than 30,000 youth and adults.

Earlier this year, CBS News ran a story focused on the bond that has been forged between teens and police in Dorchester through participation in Teen Empowerment. To learn more, watch the video.

“I am excited to join the board of an organization that makes such a difference in the lives of young people in the Boston area,” said Russo.
