The Club/Teen Excellence Center
"The Club" Teen Center and the TXL: Teen Excellence Center are part of our Teen Campus. These two neighboring buildings are home to all of our teen programs. Targeted specifically to young people, ages 11-19, this space provides programs for Homework assistance, Athletics, the Arts, Community Service, and Technology. "The Club" Teen Center space is complete with a state-of-the-art computer lab, tutoring and mentoring programs, stage, dance floor, green room, teaching kitchen, and art room. Using professionally trained Club staff, The Club offers a safe, positive place for middle school and high school kids to go after school.
Our Teen Programs are always FREE. Drop In is open weekdays from 2:30-7:00pm. We are committed to offering a SAFE and progressive space for all youth to play, create and express themselves. To enable this we simply ask that you sign-in at the front door when you arrive. Does the Teen Center pick up at your school?
