Natick Teen Center

About Us:

The Teen Center is a low-cost after school resource for middle and high school students (grade 6+). As a convenient place to hang out with friends, participants can hang out in the gym, game room, and on the fields. Staff are available to help foster positive relationships, supervise, and play with participants. The Teen Center has a wide variety of programs surrounding its mission to provide young teens with the opportunity to be independent, hang out with friends, and belong to a community focused solely on them. 

Our Mission:

The mission of the Teen Center is to provide a fun, safe space to be after school, free or low-cost programming, and a chance to explore new and exciting opportunities.
Participants who attend the Teen Center will learn independence and teamwork in an autonomous environment.

The Teen Center is closed for the summer.  We will reopen on the first day of school, August 30th, 2022.
