At the start of the 2016-2017 school year, the Boys and Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula proudly unveiled the Ilwaco Teen Center, open Monday through Thursday after school until 6 pm in the Ilwaco High School Library.
The Teen Center provides high school students with an array of fun activities and helpful resources. Every day, students are presented with a variety of activities that fill their time after school. The Teen Center is equipped with board and card games, art supplies, a ping-pong table, an Xbox One hooked up to the projector, and cushiony lounge chairs for those who want to relax and have fun.
In the two months since this school year began, over 50 students have signed up for the Center. Whether they’re hoping to get ahead on school work and college applications, or just looking for a fun spot to hang out at, the Teen Center is a terrific place for all high school students who need something to do after school.
