Staff and teens battle it out at #WeOwnFriday teen night

Posted on 6th Oct 2016 23:49:14 in News

#WeOwnFriday is part of a Boys & Girls Club initiative to attract teens around the community to hang out in a safe and positive environment. Teens face alarming trends and given how much support our teens need, 2016 has been designated as the Year of the Teen by the Boys & Girls Club of America.

Through these teen nights, the BGCSV gives teens a space that provides them with a break from the pressures of school, family responsibilities or the danger of the streets. With the collaboration of other clubs in the community, like the Boys & Girls Club of Bisbee, together they can serve more teens and give them a place to have positive interactions with friends.
