Well, Winter break has come and gone. February break is gone too. Fortunately, the BTC is still here! The week of February break was pretty calm, but Paul and Kayla had a wonderful chance to get to know some of the teens a little better. There was a lot of Wii being played and “Just Dance”-ing happening as well.
Some exciting things are underway here at the BTC. On Friday, March 11, we are hosting the Young Writer’s Project for a teen open mic night! The workshop starts at 5:00 and dinner will be served, then at 6:30, youth from around the area will come together and perform their work in front of a supportive audience of other teens and adults. We are all really looking forward to having them here in our space and hoping to have a great turn out.
On another note, the BTC is beginning the planning process for the AMAZING RACE! We are really looking forward to it this year! The date is set for June 24, 2016, so mark your calendars now! All of the money raised will benefit the Basement Teen Center and the youth who visit us!
