Teen Sample Texts
Choose from any of these tried and proven methods of recruiting teens for a CTeen summer trip. Special thanks to the shluchim who helped compile these sample texts.
Method #1: Be Specific
When asked whether they have summer plans, teens will say they do, even if they are lousy or are only one week long, in order to avoid sounding lame.
Instead of asking "Do you have summer plans?" try following this script:
Shliach: What are you doing from 26th June - 16th August?
Teen: I don't know
Shliach: I know now
You are coming on a cteen summer trip
this trip is going to be huge
Method #2: Aharon Hakohen
Shliach: I was just speaking to (name of friend) about joining a CTeen summer trip. u guys should so come together. you'd bring such a great spirit!
Teen: Really? what is she saying?
Shliach: She's checking to see if it works for her schedule.
she wants to know about u
Teen: Tell her I'm 60% going
Shliach: Can I make that 80% :)
Method #3: Pique Their Curiosity
Shliach: Did you hear the news?
Shliach: CTeen has a trip leaving from London this summer!
Shliach: Yup. Check it out at cteen.uk
