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 the 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, new technology, games, and through social, educational, and entertainment activities.
