Extended teen programs and activities are offered at the Cora Kelly, William Ramsay and Charles Houston Recreation Centers as follows:
Teens will discuss various topics from movies, music, books, and politics to teen pregnancy, relationships and family. Very few topics are prohibited, so parental consent is a must for all participants. Each teen will submit a topic at the beginning of each club meeting (allowing for privacy). Topics will be drawn at random for discussion. For additional information, call the Teen Program Office at 703.746.5575.
Volunteer opportunities and community service projects may be coordinated throughout the year for teens in grades 8-12. For more information, call the Teen Program Office at 703.746.5575.
