The Teen Center is open 5 days a week, from 2:00 -8:00 p.m., throughout the school year. During the summer, spring and winter breaks, and teacher planning days, the Club is open from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County works to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. The Club offers daily access to a broad range of programs in six core program areas: character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; the arts; sports and fitness; and technology.
In September 1994, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County proposed an outreach and partnership program to all Glades’ area schools.
By December, an agreement was reached for the Club to assume the operation of after school programs in three elementary schools in Belle Glade.
Over the years, the Glades’ area Boys & Girls Club grew to encompass six school-based sites and one stand-alone facility, serving more than 1,200 youth through programs and outreach. The Teen Center serves 200 members and is growing fast!
My teenager has grown up in the Boys & Girls Clubs in the Glades, and now he is a mentor at the Teen Center. He is a shining light and positive role model to the other teens, and he is going to college in the fall! Thank you Teen Center!" - Latisha; Club parent
