An Evening to Celebrate Arizona's Youth
The Alfredo J. Molina Community Lifeline Award is presented to individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the service of others in their lifetime, particularly to youth. The recipient serves as a community role model; provides inspiration to others with their personal and professional integrity, leading through creativity, initiative and excellence.

Imagine a world where 60% of our teenagers have
thought about suicide, 1 in 6 has made a suicide plan and nearly 1 in 10 has
attempted suicide. Imagine a world
where our teens are struggling with peer pressure, bullying, substance abuse,
physical abuse, gang violence, and then… imagine
limiting access to the resources teens need to deal with those stressors.
Sadly…that world is a reality for most of our teens today. In 2015, one (1) child died by suicide every 5.5 days in Arizona.
But there is hope! Teen Lifeline is a safe, confidential, and crucial crisis service where teens help
teens make healthy decisions together. The
biggest thing that separates us from other crisis hotlines is the people who
answer the phone. We understand that when a teen wants to talk about their
problems, they would prefer to turn to another teen. That is what makes Teen Lifeline both unique and incredibly successful, teens helping teens. Established
in 1986 in Arizona, our goal is to answer teens’ calls for help. Now celebrating 30 years in Arizona, Teen Lifeline can proudly say it has served over half a million teens and families.
