The Chelan Teen Center was established in 1999 to meet the needs of Chelan Valley youth Middle School through High School Age. The Center provides teens a safe place and the guidance to pursue educational, social, leadership and community-service opportunities. It is located in the basement of the United Methodist Church in downtown Chelan but is not church affiliated.
The Teen Center offers two programs, Above and Beyond, an after-school Tutor program and an Evening program, from October through May. Both programs are attended by 200-300 students each year.
The Evening Program participants can choose from a variety of activities: music, table tennis, billiards, board games, cards, arts and crafts, TV/video and community service projects. For safety and security, teens register to attend the Center, and sign in and out each time they visit.
The Tutor program is held Monday through Thursday in the Chelan High School Library from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM.
