About Us

Providing Support Through Every Stage

Started for teens in 2008, the Teen Center has always offered a space for teens to connect with each other and to the larger Addison County community. Throughout our history, we have strived to provide programming and spaces that support relationship and skills building. Our program offerings have expanded over the years and now include social, emotional, and life skills development opportunities.

 

 

Located at the Middlebury Recreation Park, we are in a central location downtown, walking distance from the middle school and the high school. We strive to provide varied after-school and summer break programming. We look forward to meeting new teens and continuing to serve the youth of our community!
