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.
