You Belong Here

The City Life Center is a place where teens come to belong...a place where they can have fun and learn new skills while being part of a community of peers and trustworthy adults. The Center is open after school on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We have classes and activities including open gym, music production, auto mechanics and photography. We also volunteers available to help with homework, mentoring groups and bible studies for both middle and high school students.
