NEW Middle School Fitness Room Now Open!

Thanks to the generosity of Charity Case Wines, the Teen Center now has a middle school fitness room! Throughout the month of December the music room of past years received a face-lift to become a fitness room. Access to the Fitness Room is during the regular Teen Center hours of 3 - 6 pm. In order to utilize the Fitness Room each teen must have a signed Fitness Room Waiver and attend a Fitness Room Orientation. Waivers are available on the front table at the Teen Center or can be downloaded below.

Donations

Still have that exercise bike gathering dust in the corner of the garage? Great news! The Teen Center is in need of home exercise equipment in good condition. Treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical machines, weight benches, free weights, and yoga equipment are some of the items on our wish list this year.

Cooking utensils, healthy snacks, sports equipment, and art supplies are always gladly accepted.  Please contact Amalia Kulczycki at the the Teen Center or e-mail teencenter@cityofsthelena.org if you would like to make a donation.
