The Center serves all boys and girls in grades 7 through 12 (12 to 17 years old). The facility is a "drop in" format, which means teens may enter or leave at any given time during the designated hours and may choose to engage

 in different activities throughout the duration of their visit. Daily activities include indoor sports, arcade-type games, home theater with movies, computer lab, tutors, fitness lab, etc.


Safety is our utmost concern. We have established the following guidelines and expectations for teens to follow while at the facility:

  • Participants will refrain from wearing inappropriate clothing.
  • Fighting, drug use, smoking, and threats are not tolerated.
  • Members will maintain respect for staff, facility, and guest of the Center at all times.
All youth attending the Center are issued a photo I.D. card. The first visit to the Center by a teen, the teen picture is taken and given an application to be completed and returned with a parent's signature.
