Building Twenty-One Teen Center is thriving at its new location, despite the lack of a bus to the facility. Students use Redi-Ride, parents and Ms. Troitsky to get to the building. Some students even walk or ride their bikes to get to ‘the most fun I’ve had all day,’ as one student puts it.
Building Twenty-One Teen Center is the place to be for teens 7th thru 12th grades. Young people who frequent the center clearly love having a place to call their own. The teen center is so much more than just a hangout. Students can get help with homework, share and reflect on their day, find positive support among peers and staff, create crafts, play sports and so much more.
Volunteers find the experience rewarding. Helping the next generation find their purpose and success is an exciting challenge that many find fulfilling and worthwhile.
As our group of participants grows, so does our need for volunteers. We are looking for anyone who wants to help impact young people in a positive way. Some volunteers come on a weekly basis and some participate once a month. Any time spent positively with our teens at Building Twenty-One is greatly appreciated. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our volunteer family and help us spread a positive influence in our community.
Also, if anyone has a bus connection, we have many teens that would love to attend regularly but are lacking transportation.
