The Community Center maintains a safe place for teens to hang out with their friends and the opportunity to make new ones; in a place that is free from outside influence of alcohol, drugs and tobacco. The Center's focus and number one goal is to provide youth the chance to be themselves; while experimenting with new ideas, games, social and entertainment activities, such as music lessons, art classes, after school programs, dances and many more.
