Youth Venture Teen Centers provide a safe, drug-free environment for young people to hang out, skate, play pool, foosball or ping pong, enjoy video games and much more.
There are four Youth Venture Teen Centers in East County staffed with trained adult supervisors. Each center offers one-on-one mentoring with a character based curriculum that encourages good citizenship and success. There is also a leadership program to help build and develop future community leaders.
There are many program activities available through Youth Venture Teen Centers including camp outs, special trips, sporting events, beach and mountain day trips, special event dinners and more.
Use of the center is available to kids ages 10-18 at no charge 362 days a year. All four centers are open Monday through Friday from 3pm to 8pm and from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Membership simply requires a signed permission slip from a parent or guardian, and a commitment to complete at least 3 one-on-one mentoring courses with a trained Youth Venture volunteer.
