Natick Teen Center
The Teen Center is a drop-in program open to middle and high school students living in Natick or attending Natick schools. As Teen Center members, students can take charge of their afternoons in the gym, game room, and outside on the fields, where they can hang out with friends, do homework, play games, and more.
The mission of the Natick Teen Center is to provide a fun, safe, and monitored space to be afterschool, provide unique programs in a variety of topics and interests, and a chance to explore new and exciting opportunities within the community.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the Teen Center has reduced it's capacity to 20 participants/day to ensure the safety of participants and staff. Pre-registration is now required.
The Teen Center is open Mondays-Thursdays for participants in grades 5-8.
Now open to middle school participants for the full week! See our updated schedules below.
