Teens playing pool at Firstenburg Community Center

The way we think about teens influences how they act. Our core principles of Trust, Respect, Self-Esteem, Consistency and Integrity make it second nature for teens of all social and economic backgrounds to come together. Teens develop tolerance, acceptance and gain support while hanging out and having fun in a safe and positive environment.
