The Alaska St. Teen Center offers teen services to members ages 13-18. The teen club is a safe and fun place for teens to come after school and during the summer. We thrive to create a safe and healthy environment for youth members to succeed, grow and lead. We’ve created a culture of belonging, we want all members to feel included and welcomed. Our center is the first fully dedicated teen site for Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana. This site is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles, character and leadership and academic success for our teens through programming, mentorship and volunteerism. We hope to have all our Club members on track to graduate and to be productive and responsible adults.
