We are GROWING!
The word is out and we are serving more teens than ever! That means more youth are accessing basic resources and participating in healthy, positive after-school activities and programs
We have made some upgrades to accommodate this amazing growth. Thanks to the Danny Nelson Memorial Golf Event, we have added a metal detector and monitor as a proactive measure to ensure our teens safety. We are also upgrading our sign in system to be able to send parents a quick e-mail when their teen signs out to head home.
You'll notice the construction of a new larger bathroom area thanks to funding received by Jersey Mike's Subs.
Our kitchen expansion is also in order as more teens mean more mouths to feed! We are currently seeking funding from individual donors and foundation grants to assist with our wish list that includes, double ovens instead of a residential oven, a commercial refrigerator, along with stainless steel work spaces and pans.
Second Story Teen Center is proud to partner with Arukah Institute of Healing to offer a teen support group "Living through Stress, Anxiety and Grief" every Friday 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM beginning November 30. The support group will be led by certified counselors who will be teaching life and coping skills for struggling teens.
