Teen Center Store & Craft Room
The store and craft program work together hand and hand, the craft the teens create allows them to learn the process of running a retail store along with creating the product. Craft teaches teens how to make things, be innovative and gain a skill they can use throughout life. In our craft program learning is not defined by content conveyable in a written manual or by way of lectures but rather as activities that immerse the learners in their environment with all their senses. Our store teaches them how to run, operate, and setup a retail store. Also giving them the full experience of making a product and taking it to retail.
The computer lab will be used to teach teens coding, S.T.E.A.M projects and to research fields of interest. In an area where most teens don’t have a computer and/or internet at home, this space allows teens to have access to computer and technology.
This program provides teens with the tools needed to take an idea from their head to the market place. Teens knowing the power of entrepreneurship encourages them to build companies that provide jobs for other people and how to turn their passion to profits. Our entrepreneurship program teaches them how to make money not only how to earn it, allowing them to always have away of making income for themselves or their families.
Through gaming teaches teens learn how to design and build their own video games and robots. We cover all aspects of development including Level Design, Animation, Coding, Robotics and more! We use games to teach sports, problem solving and to promote creative thinking.
Video Production Room
Teens receive an experience in behind-the-scenes film making – working in teams to complete projects, while focusing on fundamentals such as storytelling, visual aesthetics, and technical roles. Teens gain hands-on experience working each position on set on a variety of film making projects, enabling them to get a feel for the role that each crew member plays in production.
Our print shop allows our teens to create products for our store, learn about inventorying materials, buying materials, and the how to find profits. Small print shops typically provide one or more services including photocopying, offset printing, screen printing or digital printing, offering diverse product lines such as personal and commercial paper printing, T-shirts and other wearables, signage, posters and promotional goods.
Our cafeteria will serve more as a collaboration station. The collaboration station serves many purposes: It is more engaging to work with a partner than to work alone, Technology has dampened social skills and has encouraged people to live alone in their own worlds.
