Teen Center Hours
Monday-Friday, 5:00 - 9:00 pm
The West Suburban YMCA cares about teens. Together with the Newton Partnership we offer a safe place for middle and high school teens to hang out after school. Teens can play pool, foosball, ping-pong, video games, watch movies, work out, play sports, create music in the lab, or just hang out with friends.
The teen center also offers a computer lab, homework help and scheduled activities like boxing, cooking, gardening, basketball league and dancing. The qualified and caring staff members supervise the center and coordinate the activities. The West Suburban YMCA gives teens a safe place to call their own and a chance to connect with positive role models and adults who care about them.
This is a drop-in program and is FREE FOR ALL. We are located downstairs in the Rec Room. In addition to our regular drop-in hours, we offer special trips and workshops.
Email Tasia or call her at (617) 244-6050 x3043 for more information on joining the Teen Center.
We provide transportation to and from the Teen Center daily. See the full schedule.
