The Teen Center is a NO-COST drop-in center for teens (first day of 6th grade through 20 years old). The Teen Center is open to any teenager who wants to come in and hang out.
Teen Center is back starting September 1st! We will be open Tuesday-Thursday from 4pm-6pm and Friday from 4pm-8:30 pm. Youth will be required to wear masks while in the teen center, and admission will be limited to 10 people per day. We will be posting events and activities on Facebook. You can sign up here for days you would like to attend. We can’t wait to have you back! Print out or come pick up the waiver and drop it by TEENS, Inc. or bring them on your first day!
Teen Center programming aims to incorporate natural mentoring, recreation, employment, leadership/character building, and crime, violence, and substance abuse prevention.
We have a gymnasium equipped with a foam pit, a basketball hoop, and a bouldering wall. We also have computers with internet access and a fully equipped kitchen that is regularly restocked with food. The Teen Center provides a safe place for teens for those who do not participate in traditional after school activities.
