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.

Drop In

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?

WheelLab @ Club

Wheellab is a new non-profit developed specifically to meet the needs of the east king county community to provide creative, hands-on building programs for at-risk youth.  Through the medium of bicycles, youth will gain the necessary skills to maintain, build and create bikes in a positive environment that fosters thinking creatively and using the engineering brain in all of us. We aim to develop our youth into safe, conscientious riders, that know the rules of the road.  And most importantly, have fun doing it.  Join us this summer for this great opportunity.  

 

 

If you have any questions or want to know who is playing next please email Seth Dostart, or visit Ground Zero's Facebook page.
