We offer free Wi-Fi and snacks to youth 14 – 24 years of age from Monday 9-5pm, Tuesday-Friday 9am-8pm, Saturday 12pm-8pm daily. We offer drug prevention and other classes, as well as provide giveaways of food and hygiene products. Our staff, volunteers, and participants participate in community outreach activities throughout the area.
