Middle school and teen programs to include activities, events, and projects that are age appropriate.
The following is just a sample of what we can offer your youth:
|Each center has a designated area where teens may learn or practice computer skills.
Youth Tech Labs play a dynamic role in daily club activities such as Club Tech, a Boys and Girls Club of Americas specialized initiative program. Through Club Tech's curriculum, members can learn basic computer skills and also introduce them to more advanced computer skills like digital movie making, music making, photography, graphic design and web development.
After school, youths can also access the labs for homework and Internet surfing. Parents can be reassured that each tech lab is protected by, CYBERsitter, a content filtering software that complies with the Children’s Internet Protection Act. Each user will be taught safe Internet skills before accessing any of the lab's computers.
|Teens may join the Middle School Keystone and Torch Clubs or the High School Teen Supreme Club. These clubs help teens learn and practice leadership skills. Club members assist staff in making rules, planning programs, decorating centers, provide community service, and evaluate teen programs and services.

All trips are free of charge. Teens within the leadership program have opportunities for college scholarships and grants.
|Various clubs are offered to support individual special needs, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the 4-H Clubs.
