What We Do

Teens deserve to be Empowered.
Teens deserve to have a Safe Space.
Teens deserve to be Valued.
Teens deserve to have Fun.
Teens deserve the Facts.


REC Space

The REC Room is a hub for positive youth development in the community. It’s a space to hang out after school, get involved and get creative, and access information, resources, and safe & supportive peers and adults. Learn more about what to expect at the REC Room.


The REC uses a peer education model of teens teaching teens about sexual health, relationships, resiliency, and substance misuse. Learn more about our lessons, community outreach, and education programs.
