Teens are not simply “older children” – they have reached a developmental stage that requires a different strategic approach to recruitment, retention, marketing, staff interaction, use of space and programming. In addition, the needs and developmental abilities of younger teens ages 13 to 15 vary from those of older teens ages 16 to 18.
The teen years are a critical age for youth members. As they become adolescents, they are exposed to many different peer pressures, which may lead them to a wrong path in life.
Our new teen center will provide a safe, fun and nurturing environment where our teens can grow into caring and responsible citizens.
