Starting January 15, 2019, the Boys & Girls Club of Douglas will start a middle school and high school teen program at the Eastern Wyoming College – Douglas Campus!
Teen Program Details:
- Only open to middle school and high school students.
- Middle school and high school will have separate program areas.
- Teens will be playing fun games, building drones and other STEM-related activities, learning to build resumes and budgets all while doing it in a fun way.
- Each month we will have different themed programs.
- The programs will be run by three Teen Center Coordinators that work in the CCSD#1 school district daily and will most likely know the teens that come.
Each day teens will have a chance to win cool prizes and build memories!
