The Youth Center
Wouldn't it be great if the teenagers in Bremen had a place that they could hang out, and not worry about getting into trouble?
The Youth Center exists for teenagers that don't feel like they belong anywhere. They don't participate in extra curricular activities at school. They don't go to church. They just don't feel accepted. And here at the Youth Center they are accepted.
We don't exclude anyone. So, if someone is really involved in sports or some other activity and they want to hang out at the youth center they are more than welcome.
There will be some life skills groups that students can participate in. We will have an open Bible Study. We will have music, and air hockey table, pool tables and ping pong tables to entertain. There will be some couches, chairs, and tables and chairs to play board games. If the space is large enough I would like to have an area with a basketball hoop as well.
The Youth Center will be run by volunteers. We will be a non-profit organization. Students will not be charged to come hang out. For now, I will be the only full time staff. Hopefully I will eventually be able to hire one or two more full time or part time staff to help out more. This will add depend on how we get money coming in. I am thinking that we will have to be supported by local businesses and churches or something like that.
We will be open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 4 to 1/2 hour before curfew.
One minor detail... I don't have a place to run this youth center out of. And ideas are welcome!
