COVID-19 and Teen Center Operations: Normal Teen Center operations are currently being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the ever-changing nature of this situation, the Teen Center is now open from Monday through Thursday, 2:30-5:00 p.m. The center is closed on Fridays. Teen Center staff is conducting health screenings prior to entry as well as enhanced cleaning procedures to keep everyone safe and healthy. Masks are required for entry and must be worn properly (over nose and mouth) by all members within the center. Please be aware that the center may have unexpected closures. We apologize for any inconvenience. Up-to-date information on hours and closures can be found on our Facebook page.
The Winston Community Teen Center opened its doors in spring 2008. All youth in grades 7-12 are welcome to join, free of charge.
During the school year, our members can participate in a variety of academic enrichment programs such as, weekly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and computer coding projects, the Teens Can Act (T.C.A.) youth theatre club, the Teen Cuisine cooking group, the Art Zone creative arts program, the Y.E.$. (Youth Entrepreneur Success) financial literacy youth-run concession business program, and the Teen Center Learning Garden.
The Winston Teen Center, in partnership with the USDA*, provides meals to its members every day. This generous support from the USDA allows us to serve meals to our members that are both nutritious and delicious! Meals are made fresh onsite and are provided at no cost to Teen Center members.
