Started by and for teens in 2008, the Teen Center has always offered a space for teens to connect with each and to the larger Addison County community. Throughout our history, we have strived to provide programming and spaces that supported relationship and skills building.
Now Located at the Recreation Park near Mary Hogan Elementary School, we look to provide varied after-school and school break programming. We look forward to continuing to serve the youth of our community!
Cicilia, a Montana native, recently graduated from Middlebury College, and chose to stay in Middlebury to support the community that supported her so much throughout her education. After completing her AmeriCorps service here, and being hired, Cicilia looks forward to continuing to strengthen the community partnerships and offerings at the Teen Center. She lives in Middlebury with her partner and their puppy, and spends time reading and playing board games with friends when not immersed in the Teen Center!

Hi pals! My name is Ellie, and my human is Cicilia. Sometimes I go to work with my Mom and get to see my teenage friends. My favorite place to sit in the teen center is anywhere I can look out the windows. I also like to sit in the office chairs when they're unoccupied. I even got to join a Zoom call this fall! I enjoy long walks on the TAM, munching on flies, snuggles, and being the center of attention. Just remember, you can do it!
