The Brookline Teen Center provides a safe place for teens to connect with one another, gain access to valuable academic support and engage in unique learning opportunities that will reveal their strengths and interests. All youth can excel when provided with opportunities for healthy risk-taking, allowing them to discover their own identities and unique skills.
Funded entirely by private donations, the BTC offers social, recreational and academic areas including a music recording studio, candlepin bowling, half court gym, yoga and dance studio, social recreational area, fitness center, cafe, game room, ping pong and 2,000 square feet of academic enrichment space which includes computers, a classroom, study space and a tutor room. Teen-centered programming supplements the lively activities in this architecturally inspiring converted parking garage.
The BTC serves as a hub for out of school activities for Brookline youth. Mondays is a drop in day for middle school students while high school students can drop in on any other day. Brookline teens come to the BTC with their ideas and we help bring them to life. In the last year, we have supported teens with running a bamboo bike building workshop, creating a makerspace, and starting a Lego Robotics program. The BTC also offers programming in music, arts, and athletics and works with school clubs to host events and fundraisers. The BTC strives to help youth be their best version of themselves.
