About teenCENTER

Beginning September 13, teenCENTER will meet on Friday evenings from 4:00 - 8:00 pm throughout the academic year. 6th-12th graders are invited to come and participate in sharing, learning, encouraging one another, and having fun together at teenCENTER. Teenagers will have opportunities to cook together, discuss topics that matter to them, learn new skills, participate in service projects, go on outings, and simply spend time together. Our 2019-20 activities will include lock-ins, retreats, summer camp, and more!
