Hangin’ Out in the New Teen Center

The beautiful new Teen Center at SLP!

The Junior League of Columbia has graciously provided our teenagers age 11-17 with a brand new Teen Center!

This space provides our teenagers with a place to just “Hang Out” and be teenagers. Twelve JLC volunteers joined forces with teens living at SLP to create this new space.  This not only gives the teenagers a place to “Hang Out,” but a place where they can study, play games and have readily available resources for teens in the community.

“Before” pictures of the space:

Within the Teen Center you will find a motivational quote which states: “The best way to predict the future is to create it” by Abraham Lincoln.

We are so thankful to Junior League volunteers and their Done in a Day grant for making this space a reality for our teenagers!
