About Our Teen Programs
Welcome to the “Teen Nvasion” where we are implementing our new initiative of A.C.T.T. Now (Advancing Community Through Teens Now) by taking control and re-establishing the presence of our youth within our community. A.C.T.T. Now is dedicated to providing teens with safe, supervised activities that promote positive self image, health, wellness, and a sense of community. A.C.T.T. Now will also help teens gain the basic knowledge and skills needed to be on their way of becoming fully functional adults. See a complete list of Teen Programs in our City Guide.
