The Anderson Teen Center, a program of Pathways to Hope for Children, is a place where teens ages 13-17 (and 18 if still enrolled in high school) come to socialize, participate in all different types of programs, get homework assistance, and give back to the community that they live in.
Here at ATC, there are opportunities to gain new valuable skills, socialize with friends, visit colleges, learn how to get jobs, make lifetime friends, and have a blast while doing it! If there isn’t a program that is offered that interests you, then you have the freedom to work with our staff to start your own group. There is no limit to what we can accomplish when we all work together!
Every day, we offer pool tables, air hockey, Foosball, music, computers, books, board games, and much more!
Additionally, we currently offer these special programs:
Cooking- Learn to cook your own delicious food; you might be surprised how great healthy can taste!
Leadership- Become an active member of your community. Make changes in the Teen Center. Plus, it looks great on a resume!
Art- Beginners can learn valuable art skills, and skilled artists can practice and improve!
Boy’s Council/ Girl’s Circle- Boys and girls can gather with a staff member of their gender in a private setting.
Tutoring/ Homework Assistance- Our staff is available to help you get the good grades you want. Tutoring is available to schedule.
We also host special events! From Car Wash Fundraisers, to Halloween Haunted Houses, to Holiday Parties, to Card Game Tournaments, we can do it all!
There are so many opportunities here! Come by and check us out, you won’t be disappointed!
