Our Teen Center offers a safe place for teens, where they can  be themselves without feeling the pressure of being judged.  From sports to the arts, volunteerism to academic pursuits, we offer teens resources and programs to create meaningful experiences today as they prepare a plan for the future.

Keystone Club
Keystone provides leadership development opportunities for teens. It affords them an opportunity to gain valuable leadership and service experience.  Keystone conducts activities in four areas:

  • Academic Success
  • Career Exploration,
  • Community Service
  • Teen Outreach

Keystone meetings take place on Thursdays 6:00pm-7:30pm.  Snacks are provided at each meeting.

SMART GIRLS/Open Gym
SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the developmental needs of girls in grades 6th-8th grade.

During the open gym, girls can work on their basketball skills, scrimmage with peers and also explore their own and societal attitudes and values as they build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care and developing positive relationships with peers and adults.

SMART Girls/Open Gym takes place on Wednesdays 6:00pm-8:00pm.

Money Matters: Make it Count
The financial decisions that young people make today will impact their future. We pair youth with supportive Club mentors and volunteers to develop the financial skills that can lead to workplace readiness, lifelong financial stability and overall success. In addition to staff-led financial literacy sessions, young people practice their financial decision-making skills through fun, engaging digital tools and games. Teens who complete Money Matters show improved financial management skills, including saving money and sticking to a budget.

Passport to Manhood
Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions and activities that reinforce character, leadership and positive behavior. The program fosters positive values and responsible behavior in youth and gives them practice in making healthy decisions related to their physical, cognitive, emotional and social development.  As they build and practice life skills for decision-making, conflict resolution and
healthy relationships, boys learn the essential attitudes, values and skills they need to become responsible adult men.

Teen membership is $20 per year.  For more information on our teen programs, please email keystone@epbgc.org
