The Teen Center has reopened! Our current hours are 2:30-5:00, Monday through Thursday. We will remain closed on Fridays. Due to social distancing guidelines, we are limited to 10 teens in the center at a time. Masks covering the nose and mouth are required to be worn at all times while inside. We look forward to seeing you all again!

Fall is already upon us and school is back in session! The Teen Center is still closed at this time, but we’ve started our new Virtual Teen Center using the chat app Discord. The Virtual Teen Center will be our place to hang out, chat, and enjoy our many fun programs from the comfort of your computer, phone, or tablet! We are running special programs such as a scavenger hunt, photography, crafts, and cooking, Monday-Thursday from 3:00-4:00. The Virtual Teen Center will be available from September 21st-October 15th.

The Virtual Teen Center is a members-only space for community youth in grades 7-12, and between ages 12 to 18. Membership is completely free. Becoming a member of the Teen Center is easy! Simply read our member handbook, then fill out a membership application. You can email your completed application to debiwtc@gmail.com, or drop it off at the Winston Community Center Library.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us or leave a comment!

As I spend time at the community center in my two different offices, I continue to run into our local and teen center youth. It is so good to see them!
Today a couple of them were caught volunteering for our Winston branch library. I had to capture the moment. Great job guys!
Many of them still utilize the community center, library and surrounding park as a safe space to hang out.
Can’t wait to have them back at the Winston Teen Center again. ❤
